Dell XPS 8500 graphics card upgrade

I want to upgrade the graphics card in my Dell XPS 8500, and since I'm quite new to fiddling around with computers I figured I'd ask someone about it. I'm considering getting a GeForce GTX 960 but I'm not sure if my computer will support it. Will the PSU be able to support the card or will I have any other issues installing it?

    according to the sites I am seeing it is 460 watts, in which a 960 will run. you have a PCIE slot, so unless you do not have a six pin VGA power cable from you PSU, you are fine. just in case check what you PSU is rated at, and what amperage it can supply on the 12 volt rail.
