Honestly the biggest problem today is that OEM PSUs have hardly any extra connectors. They specify them with only the connectors expected for a "standard" build of this machine setup. I recently worked on two Inspiron 620 and a Vostro 260 (same machines, different names). All three had 1x 4-pin motherboard, 1x 24-pin motherboard and 2x 2 SATA power connectors. And that's it. With a DVD-RW, an HDD and an SSD installed, there was a single SATA connector free that could have been converted to a 6-pin for a GPU, and it was located up near the DVD so would have been a pain without an extra long converter cable.
