    EDIT:
    Not getting the Dell.

    Edited post:
    Decided to build one myself after deciding I wanted a HTPC case.
    Will my Corsair HX520 PSU work with these parts or should I get a new PSU?

    Specs:
    GTX 660Ti
    i7 3770
    16 GB PC1600
    ASRock Z77 USB 3.0 Motherboard
    1x SSD
    2x HDD
    Blu Ray Drive
    Might add a tv card



    Original post
    Looking at a Dell, yes I know it's cheaper to build but I don't want to even though I can't configure it exactly like I want.

    Anyone know if a GTX 660Ti or GTX 670 will work with that PSU?

    Does Dell use a standard PSU or do they have something different?

    TIA

    Pretty sure it's a standard ATX PSU. According to PCmag it's 460W and capable of powering a 225W graphics card, so a GTX 660 Ti or 670 should work without any issues. I don't know what number of PCIe connectors is supplied though. If only one, better go with a 7850 or 660.

    Why don't you want to build it yourself?

    I would look at other pre builts though. Digital Storm, maybe. Also heard good about Maingear.

    It's easily enough for those components but what case are you planning to get? You should also post in GH about your new build to get advice on the parts

    That looks nice, never seen it before. It's pretty big though, almost like a mid tower case turned on its side.
