305 :whistling:
Yes thats the PSU.
I'd stick to what I have already recommended, thing is you may have to wait another 2 weeks before we see it anywhere. I have never heard of a 305W PSU.

I knew they were underpowered, but never would have dreamed that much so.

That probably because there's no such thing as a 305W PSU.

Is it really terrible? Does that affect the speed of my computer generally? Is it possible to upgrade that if it is an issue? I'll wait a and see the new GPU all the same though if it is going to be better than my current card.

It doesn't affect your speed, just the upgradablity path, but thats to be expected from Dell or any other computer manufacturer. Cutting back on the PSU is just as simple way to cut back on costs, since it won't affect most people, unless you upgrade. I believe Dell power supply have different physical dimensions, forcing you to remain with a Dell PSU.
