You really didnt need to do that. I have an Alienware as well and it also has the 420 watt PSU(18a on the +12). I have a 6800 Ultra and have been able to OC it to 454 core and 1280 memory with absolutely no problems. I also have 4 hardrives, 2 optical drives, 8 case fans(including a vantec dual fan pci card), cathode lighting, etc.

How old is your Alienware? I have the predator case. Both that and the previous tower cases Alienware used are ATX. The Predator is just the same case as the previous one with a new face lift overtop.
