the top cpu in xps 8100 is i7-870

Your processor is too weak for this graphic card.

Intel Core i7-870 (Clock speed at 100%) with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Clock speed at 100%) x1 will produce 44.39% of bottleneck. Everything over 10% is considered as bottleneck.

Will a gtx 970 work? And my Cpu is an i7-860

Intel Core i7-860 (Clock speed at 100%) with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (Clock speed at 100%) x1 will produce 42.95% of bottleneck. Everything over 10% is considered as bottleneck.

Intel Core i7-860 (Clock speed at 100%) with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Clock speed at 100%) x1 will produce only 2.32% of bottleneck.

Intel Core i7-860 (Clock speed at 100%) with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Clock speed at 100%) x1 will produce 15.93% of bottleneck. Everything over 10% is considered as bottleneck.

If they physically fit (and you have available PCIe-Power-Cables) my guess is ether the Nvidia-970 or even the GTX-1060 will work.

I believe the XPS-8100 is non-UEFI (ie Legacy) BIOS/motherboard ... just like my old Alienware Aurora-R1 with Intel i7-930. Mine is still running great with a GTX-1070. I can run Fallout-4, Fallout-76, and Forza-4 on it with no problems at 1080p.

The GTX-1070 ended-up being much better, faster, and gaming-capable than it's original AMD-5870.

Finally, to offset the CPU-speed (and other older components) your bootable C-Drive should be a SATA-SSD.
