    Monitor: BenQ GL2450E 24 inch Widescreen Full HD LED

    PSU: Corsair Builder Series CXM 430W ATX/EPS

But i would like to add a Gtx 760 would a 500wat psu be all i need to support it?
This was my first build and i just want to step it up but i only have £250

Here you go. 500 watts is a minimum. the XFX 550 is really good and has ample power for your build.

I'm running Nv cards and the 760 is a good choice.

The GeForce GTX 760 max TDP is 170W and requires- 30A and a 500W PSU minimum.
for that GPU, I recommend something more like a good branded certified 500W~600W PSU from Seasonic,XFX,Corsair(TX,HX,AX), Antec, for having more headroom for future upgrades too.
