Default Shopping for a PSU

I think I found one that will do it's job. I'm building a PC with an Athlon X2 4400 processor and other goodies. So here's the link to the PSU that I might get.

I know the amperage is perfect but is it a good deal or could I find it cheaper somewhere else?

You do not want to put a $50.00 limit on such an essential part of your PC. This PSU is amazing and is very inexpensive, the link is below. Coolmax PSU's suck. Antec is not that great anymore.
