Default Coolmax CX-550 PSU

Is this a decent power supply for a general gamer with no OC'ing?

Coolmax CX-550 The reviews seemed good and the price is good. Any thoughts would be great!

It's ok, but I would get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103931
more reliable and only $10 more. If you don't have that to spare, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103930
is a little under your that coolman's W but shouldn't be that big of a difference. What are your specs?

Well actually Jac, that is 78$ CANADIAN; loll., and newegg I know is a U.S. site.
78$ is about 67$ american. Maybe you could give me some choices from the site i gave u directly, as tigerdirect.ca is canadian, some other canadian sites are Ncix , Anitec , HLTechnology and Canada Computers ...so any more suggestions on the Coolmax or another other good but decent priced PSU would be good.

The basic specs of my computer are:
Pentium D - 2.8ghz x 2
1Gb of DDR2 Ram
BFG 6600GT OC
250GB 7200rpm HD
2 DVD Drives
