It's all good, I barely missed it myself.

He could change it, but I don't think it's a necessity...though knowing the exact model would be useful.

Don't waste your money on a superclocked edition, just get a regular one and overclock it yourself.

Newegg.com - EVGA 01G-P3-1180-AR GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

15 bucks cheaper.

I have never installed a PSU but from what I am reading it looks to be very easy. so I might go for both upgrades.

Yeah, swapping out a PSU is a piece of cake. Almost as easy as adding RAM.
