Default Would Raidmax be considered generic/bad or good enough PSU?

I've recently started to look at the PSU that came with my case. It is a Raidmax 420W PSU (case).
Do I need something better? The only thing that will really suck up some power is the Radeon x850 XTPE. I don't really plan on putting much stuff that will use much power. IE, only one DVD drive, one HD for now(i'm not big on storage), only one other PCI card (Audigy2ZS)...
Should I look for something else?

<font size=\"1\" color=\"red\"><strong>My specs:</strong>
AMD Athlon 64 3500 Winchester
MSI Neo2 Platinum NForce3 Ultra
2GB Corsair XMS Ram
520W Aspire Triple Fan PSU
GeForce 6800 Ultra
Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS
10,000 RPM 74GB Raptor
120GB Maxtor
Princeton 17\' DVI Monitor
Logitech Cordless Duo MX
Creative P7800 7.1 Speakers
AOpen DVD Dual Layer recorder

personally I don't trust Raidmax, I would get an Antec, Enermax, Thermaltake or Ultra PSU
