Yeah, fair question, obvious answer though, they thought they could get away with it. I hope nothing is toast from it, but I would ask them to replace the PS with 450W or better. Have them test everything though, RAM could be toast, CPU could have problems, Mobo could have problems, the GTX 460 could have problems, who knows. Have them replace anything fried because they skimped on a PS, which ironically is probably one of the cheapest components in that system. They probably saved less than $10 going for 300w vs a 450w or 500w.
