Default Are the psu's that come with thermaltake cases sufficient?

I don't know a lot about psu's, but I was wondering if the ones that come with thermaltake cases are good to use. I see a lot of posts about how important the psu is, and it is often followed with a suggestion for a thermaltake psu. I'm just wondering if they put cheap ones in when they sell there cases.

What kinda power supply is it?

Since thermaltake also makes PSU's that kick @$$, I would think if you had high enough watts on the PS, it would be good.

Everyone says that the PSUs that come w/ the cases are bad, but really, most of them aren't, especially if a) it was an expensive case and b) the powersupply has enough watts. But don't count on it being silent.

If I had the extra 30-40 USD then I would definaly get one because that can cause problems in the long run because then you might have problems IF you are using to many stuff in your computer and using the stock PSU.

But the stock PSU is most likely a thermaltake, which are good PSU's.

what exactly do you look for on a power supply to tell if its decent or not.
