Remember to pick your solution.

Also, a little question just to make sure that everything will work for you. What is your actual build ?

You might find some sticker on it with those informations, without having to actually open the PSU (which I really don't recommend you to do).

No, that was the cheapest I could find. But you could cut on the graphics card, get an HD 7770 : http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0083XNWLK/?tag=pcp0f-21, the PSU that I proposed you, and then maybe get another new GPU when you'll have more money. Or just get a PSU for now, and wait to get an HD 7850. But you'll for sure need the PSU BEFORE a new GPU.

Nope, it really is the best for this price. It is even better than a few cards that actually cost more.
