Thumbs down Dead PSU *tears*

My old 500watt power supply just went I was just wondering if this would be a good replacement?

yes it has to be ebayed because I don't have a credit card in my paypal just cash.

My computer specs are
AMD 3800+
ATI HD3650 (does NOT need any additional power source)
1Gb ram
Five 80mm case fans
nothing over clocked thanks in advanced

That PSU is way too cheap in my opinion to be any good at all.
If thats the price you payed for your 500 watt, I'm not surprised it went on you.

Good quality PSU's will reach at least 40-50 or $70-$100 easy

Not necessarily, I have a $40 PSU that runs great. Of course I haven't had it for that long but... =D

It means that his new statement is correct. And that the OP should take it as an advice.
