How many devices have you added to this pc? Dell like other mfgrs, tends to put in a power supply which exactly fits what they ship you, but cannot handle much expansion. That card is a good card but uses a lot more wattage than what you had in there. The other issue couold be temperature. If you open the case and blow a small fan in it while running, see if that helps...also blow out the insides with a "can of air", never a cacuum cleaner hose.
