Hi, i'm new to the forums and I wanted to ask a question and seeing that everytime I went to Google to search about stuff on computer I found my self coming here most of the times. I was interested in buying a pre-built computer heres the full specs:

Intel Pentium Dual-Core, E5300 2.6GHz overclocked to 3GHz
Asus P5QPL-AM, Intel G41
4GB (2x2GB) Corsair TwinX XMS2, DDR2 PC2-6400 (800)
Nvidia - 512MB XFX GTS 250, 675Mhz GPU 128 Cores, 2000Mhz GDDR3
500GB Samsung Spinpoint F3, 7200rpm, 16MB Cache
Sony AD-7240S-0B - 24x DVDRW
7.1 On Board Sound
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit - OEM

But it has a 400W power supply and I heard that the GTS250 requires 450W, however the PSU is a 400W Corsair Power Series PSU are Corsair reliable and would it be ok to run all the components. Thanks and also I seen this computer: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/183308 it looked nice and all until I seen the 250W PSU, I mean is that possible?

Thanks for the fast reply and i'll get the GTS250 with the Pentium Dual Core is should run GTA IV on medium at a decent FPS and 400W is enough then ok thanks.

I couldn't edit my message for some odd reason but what I meant to say was that if 400W is enough to run the components?
 
The Corsair is a PSU good enough that you can use nearly anywhere a 450 watt PSU is recommended.

As far as temps are concerned, if the CPU is still running at stock voltage, you shouldn't need more cooling. The thing to do is to run Prime95 for about 15 minutes while watching the core temps.If the temperatures stay under 70 C, you probably will not need better cooling.
