Unless you have added more drives or fans The power supply that came with it will be fine. Keep it clean as it is straining to do what it does now and dust on the capacitors and coils will add heat.

just make sure the PSU y in your dell is standard size some computer makers make it hard to replace them without going thru them

As long as you arent having stability issues, just upping the wattage of your PSU isnt going to give you better performance (by which I assume you mean FPS).

That answer my question. I currently do not have any problems with the system at all. I keep it clean and it keeps running.

Thanks
