Default Power Supply

After a case is purchased with a set amount of power with it already... when you purchase a power supply ... it is added with the case...

ie. 420 watt case ... after purchasing 800watts power supply.. will it then be 1220 watts??

no,,if you didn't want the 420w one that came in the case, you would take that one out, and put in the 800w one you bought.

Some sites offer to build the PC for you, but usually costs about $50. Assembling the PC yourself is quite easy.

it will depend on the system builder how they do it so check with them, but usually if it comes standard with say a 420w psu and you upgrade for $25 or something to a 800w one, you would just get the 800w one and they would take out and keep the 420w one.
