Anyone give any advice about me purchasing the following. Seems like a bargain without the headache of building but does anyone know if the computer would support the graphics card with the new PSU?

The PSU calculator I use says a 325W would be enough: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

So unless you intend to upgrade a lot further (hard drives use about 10W each), just plump for something like this 430W Corsair: http://www.ebuyer.com/429886-corsair-cx-series-cx430m-atx-power-supply-cp-9020058-uk

If you have a GTX Series card, you'll want at least a 500w PSU to cope with the load it'll use. When building gaming machines for our customers, I never use PSU's under 500w just because it'll be hammering it when playing games (Thus causing reliability issues) plus with a larger PSU, you have the option of future upgrades.

The PSU you've linked to would be ideal, and at a rather impressive price.

Do it!

That PSU would take pretty much anything.
Good system.
Not your original question but do you fancy a GTX550Ti?
Have it sat here ready to go on ebay. £75.
Half the cost of the 660 and still a good card.
