Dell XPS 8300 Video Card Question and Upgrade

Last week I received the Dell XPS 8300 with the i7-2600 cpu, 8 GB Ram, 1 TB HD, Blu-ray drive, and ATI 5770. So far it has no freezing issues like a few people are having. I planning to upgrade the video card to the Nvidia Geforce GTX 560. I want to know if the XPS 8300 is able to run the GTX 560 and is worth the upgrade from the ATI 5770?

That card will require 2 x 6 pin power connectors which your current PSU has not. See HERE.
