If your looking to upgrade I would use this PSU calculator to give you a rough idea of what you would need for a PSU. Generally speaking, retail PC's (store bought) PSU's are undersized to start with along with everything else in the case. That's not to say there's nothing wrong with buying retails PC's. I own 3 retail PC's along with 1 custom built PC.
