Re: Or, just replace the PSU later...


Dell presales checked with an internal tech. The bottom line is that they originally listed the 460W as an option. That is no longer available: 350W only. Tech suggested purchasing an aftermarket if required. Dell does not stock that PSU as an accessory/upgrade.

The XPS 8500 tech specs max out at 16GB ram, and that is all Dell reps are willing to commit to. Vostro 470 is 32GB. BTW, Dell is not stocking any 8GB sticks.

I am running an old GeForce 8800 GT for the time being. It is PCI-E 2.0, and I believe the Vostro 470 interface is 3.0.

So the options are becoming clearer, and I appreciate the help!
