Some Dells in the past used proprietary power supplies that were not interchangeable with standard ATX power supplies, so be aware of that.  For power rating calculations, see http://www.jscustompcs.com/power_supply/

Do you mean the system PSU or the AC Power Supply Adaptor? ... and where are you? ie 240/110 AC supply?

FYI:

In Chapter 21 of "Upgrading and Repairing PC's", Scott Mueller gives a good account of the non-standard ATX power design used in many Dell PC's (shipped between 1996 and 2000) as well as their lame excuse for deviating from the industry standard. He also describes the dire (and costly) consequences awaiting owners of such systems who may be contemplating either a MB or PSU upgrade and are unaware of Dell's non-standard design.

They still use nonstandard power supplies.
