Power supply AC cords are generally not fused.
That doesn't mean you can't use a fusible link type if you want to
but it would cost you more.
The power supply more than likely has built in overload protection.
Just make sure you get a cord that matches your plug type and
check to make sure the switch on the back of the power supply
is set to the proper voltage for you location.

So would that be okay?

In the UK, the mains voltage is 230V.

Yes,a standard computer power supply cable would be fine.
The one you listed is also fine as long as it fits the wall socket.
Like I said,check the voltage switch on the back of the power
supply and make sure it is set to your voltage.
Some ship set to 100-115 volts.
If you have already used that power supply before,it's probably a nonissue.

The 5A fused one in your first post should be fine.
