    That card you want requires a decent Power Supply.
    I can't seem to find any information on the powersupply that is used in that PC.
    Though by looking at the GPU already included in the setup i bet its not enough.

    The space isn't really an issue, since you can get the mini model of the same GPU such as:
    http://www.amazon.com/MSI-N760-2GD5-OC-ITX/dp/B00HPS4B00/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1434911069&sr=1-1&keywords=gtx+760+mini&pebp=1434911071221&perid=0N9MDB22YAPTK92SVK7R
  2. It has an 460 watt PSU which is under spec for that card I believe. As well, Dell machines typically come with exactly the cables they need; it is probable that there is no PCIE power cable to plug into a new video card.
