Default Antec Basiq PSU

I am looking at putting one of these in a new build I am selling, it currently has:

Mobo:
Gigabyte GA-EP31-DS3L iP31 Socket 775 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer

CPU:
Intel Pentium Dual Core E2200 Socket 775 2.2GHz 800FSB Retail Boxed Processor - Ebuyer

RAM:
OCZ 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Memory Gold GX XTC CL5 DUAL CHANNEL (LIFETIME WARRANTY) - Ebuyer

HDD:
Seagate ST3500320AS 500GB Hard Drive SATA II 7200rpm *32MB Cache* - OEM - Ebuyer

Optical:
LiteOn 20X DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA LightScribe Black Bare Drive - OEM - Ebuyer

And as for the PSU I am looking at the Antec Basiq 350W. It costs £27. I am asking if anyone knows anything about these PSUs. They carry the Antec brand but I always have my quarms about budget PSUs.

As you can see it's a budget build, would it be worth spending more on an Earthwatts model or a thermaltake?

K cheers. I may throw in a 4650 as well. I think it's only going to be used for basic stuff mind.

It will handle a 4650 just fine.

They do make higher wattage basiq models as well. The next steup up is the earthwatts line, followed by the higher end NeoHE line.
