Not really sure what I need to show, let me know if you need anything else

Please provide further information about the computer such as the model name or number, the Dell BIOS information in your OP suggests that the computer is a Dell but you could have a Dell MB (motherboard) in a custom case, this information is important as some Dell computers are what is called a small form factor (SFF) and only low profile video cards will fit, they also often have low powered PSUs which are not powerful enough to handle most add on video cards made today, please run Speccy and provide the results so we can see your MB details http://www.piriform.com/speccy

NB: Also worth mentioning is that some stock Dell PSUs are smaller in size/shape and do not have the same power cables/connections as the most common ATX type of PSU.
