My PC says the max video card is 220 watts for power but I'm confused by this. Where does it show this info on newegg for example? http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814187179
as an example. I don't see the power info
What do you mean by that? Are you saying that your PSU is only 220W (which seems incredibly low) or that you can only add a card that draws 220W? If it's the latter then that's unusual but it's easy to work out - PCIe cards can draw 25W from the motherboard and 75W from a 6-pin connector and 150W from an 8-pin connector. That means you'll be looking for a card with a single 8-pin PCIe connector, which would draw 175W in total.
That said, it's a very unusual way of specifying it. Usually a card with tell you the recommended power for your PSU - for instance, the GTX670 requires a 500W PSU, while the card you listed requires 300W (as already mentioned). You won't find a card that specifies less than 300W for the PSU. What is the rating on your PSU?

Dell sometimes bundles this system with a 1GB GeForce GT 620 but I can't find out more info. It's not even sold on Dell.com.
According to the nVidia website the GT620
requires a 300W PSU. If that's accurate then you should be able to add any low-profile graphics card without any additional power connectors, like the one you listed in the original post. You need to find out the power rating on your PSU.
