Getting a new power supply...

Any input you can put into this would be great!

So I bought a new GPU (ASUS 750 ti OC) that needs a 6 pin connector, not realizing that my PSU doesnt have one. The PSU is 300w anyway so Id rather just get a better PSU than try anything else.

What I need to know is if this PSU works with the dell inspiron 3000 (3847) desktop. https://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-100b10500kr

Let me know if you need me to give any more details, Ill reply as fast as I can. Also if you have a better PSU idea around $40-50 then let me know.

EDIT: Thanks for the help guys! It looks like everything will work correctly without changing any of my ideas. Ill still contact dell support tomorrow though just to make sure.

This PSU is better than the one you have listed, and most cases will accept any PSU. I would contact dell support be sure it is compatible before buying it however.

Thanks! Ill be contacting dell tomorrow to double check. Also I found a deal with best buy for the PSU I wanted and on top of it I had a gift card so Im sticking with the EVGA. :)

Just try to make sure the case will accept a standard ATX power supply.

One alternative is to buy one of the 750 Ti cards without any 6-pin connectors; many can work off the 75W provided directly off the PCIe slot.
