I'll agree with you on this specific unit -- and some of the WAY older units.

That said, all mid-size Dell models from the Inspiron 530 through the 3847 Dell used 100% standard ATX power supplies that can easily be swapped out. The XPS 7100 through 8900 do as well.

The slim tower Dell's (530S-3647) all used standard ATX power supply connector but used smaller actual supplies -- they were reasonably easy to find replacements for though.

Additionally, all of the models from the Inspiron 530 through the 3847 (and the XPS 7100 through the 8900) use 100% standard ATX or micro-ATX form-factor motherboards that can easily be swapped out (and they have relatively standard front panel I/O connectors -- worst case, you may need to add a couple of extra pull-downs on a couple of connector pins). Most of the Vostro series have also historically used the same motherboards and components as the Inspirons, just with slightly different face plates and color schemes.

The only ones that had motherboards that couldn't readily be swapped out were the Inspiron 530/Vostro 200/220/400/410 generation units. The issue being that, while the boards were standard ATX, the ATX I/O shield on the case was non-removable and only compatible with that motherboard.

Many Dell designs before that actually used BTX form factor power supplies and cases -- which were actually "standard", just not the standard anyone was really used to. They did have much better cooling performance as a result though (Intel originally helped design the BTX form factor to solve the heating problems inherent to the Prescott series).

Prior to that, even the old Dimension 2350/2400/3000/1100/4500/4600/4700/8300/8400 series used standard ATX power supplies -- but they did have proprietary motherboard form-factors.

Of the more recent designs, the Inspiron 3646 was one of the first platforms to diverge from the standards they had used previously -- but even there, the power supply they used (an external PA series power brick) was at least "standard", it was just a standard LAPTOP power brick hanging off the back of a desktop (but easily replaced for $10-$20). Even the tiny, custom form-factor Inspiron 3050/Dell Mini uses a "standard" laptop supply!

The Inspiron 365X series, however, is a marked difference from anything Dell has put out in years. The power supply headers are totally non-standard, the power supply itself is totally non-standard, the standard 5.25" drive bays have been removed and a slower, more annoying tray-load laptop style DVD drive has been substituted, etc.

In my personal opinion, I would probably recommend everyone avoid this thing like the plague -- unless you are planning on doing essentially no upgrades to it and you are content to either pay Dell to fix it or just throw it away when it has problems (getting proprietary repair parts will be a pain with this thing). Even if the unit works wonderfully, from a maintenance stand point, this thing is the worst, least standard design Dell has put out since prior to the Dimension 2350 series (i.e. circa 2002 or before).

Any chance an nVidia 1070 would work with this? Or is the power supply not sufficient?

Edit: nm, doesn't look like it'll fit nor is compatible with the proprietary power supply

Grabbed it.
Open-Box Excellent - Certified
$294.99 + Tax

Computer I am using now is a refurbish deal Dell we got 4 years ago for about $500. It is never turned off other than power outages. The last month I have started to notice it having to chug a lot doing basic things and the restarts going from taking a long time to even longer.
So I have been on the lookout for a replacement in this price range and this looks like a great deal.
