Plus on the side of the PSU, if you open the case, it should have the power rating on it somewhere.

Unfortunately, I can't find adequate information about the Imedia D2315 online, in particular its PSU capabilities.

When you get the machine back there should be a plaque on the side of the PSU that gives its specifications. Also, check for PCI-E power connectors:

Ok! I'm still waiting for the blasted thing back and was informed (conveniently) today that there are hardware and software problems in the system so the obvious master reset will clear the software problems but as for hardware- they don't no the problem yet so :/

I would recommend a HD 5770, its what I am using on my new desktop.
From Overclockers UK, it costs around 130, depending on any offers they are running, and which version (Sapphire, ect)

Yes- English Money something I can understand and 130 quid sounds nice as well, do overclockers UK do many good offers?

The 5770 requires a single 6 pin PCI-E power connector. though. (Some units come with an adapter from Molex or SATA poer.)

The minimum recommended PSU is 450W.

Pop the side panel off and make note of the total wattage, and also how many watts on the 12V rail (hopefully that info is on the label).
stormy13 meant Volts on the 12v rail. This is as important or more than the wattage. (no disrespect intended for the correction)
