After the terrible news about the next Xbox I'll be upgrading for the next gen at some point anyway.
Is it ok to get a higher one now so I won't need to later or will that cause the card to overload or some such thing?

A new PSU is the first solution.
A 520 watt as suggested is good for almost any system with a single video card, if you think you may over clock in the future, a 600W will do the job.
You main problem with an upgrade path is the Dell case, hence the selection of the Seasonic PSU, (for it's size)
The Dell case has a very limited number of PSUs that will fit. Little if any upgrade path for cooling. No USB 3.0 on the front.
If you purchased a new case and PSU, you could then transfer the rest of your parts.
Your upgrade later would be a new MB, CPU and RAM.
or will that cause the card to overload or some such thing?
No, the system will only draw as much power as it needs, even if you had a 1000W PSU.

Aren't the more powerful cards in the future going to need more than 520? Like a HD 9970.
That doesn't seem very good for the price. (I'm in Canada so changing it to .ca makes it cost $30 more, $20 in price and $10 in shipping.)
What about these?
I tried one more time in case the dust clear out was any help and this time it crashed to the desktop and said the display driver stopped responding instead of locking everything up and needing to cut the power. I don't know if that's any further useful info or not.

The Case and PSU will do the job
and both get quite good reviews on Newegg.

Also my hard drive isn't going to delete itself being swapped into the new case is it?

No, your drive will not be wiped.
We can see if the below tool finds any problems on your computer, click on the diagnose now button, and follow the prompts. I would start with the software first, then the hardware..

"The Dell System Detect application may not be running on your computer. Click Download button to install.?"
If yes, you should go to the program and install it, then run the Diagnostic tool again.

I downloaded this: http://www.afterdawn...rmation/siw.cfm but I'm not sure how to get the relevant info.
The only thing it flagged that I could find was this:

Looks like we will have to abandon the Dell Tool.
ii have installed the SIW software to try out. some good features. Have not worked out yet how to upload the files, many file types are not supported on G2G.
Error message shown in SIW may be false as I have looked back at your Speccy report and RAM shows as A/OK
