It's a good entry level psu, you could probably find it cheaper at other locations though.

I have that same PSU in my current build. It'll power pretty high end hardware (I have a Q9550, GTX 285, 8GB RAM, and one 1.5TB HDD). Its 12V rails are rated at like 45A or something like that.

Just yesterday I picked a corsair 550W over this PSU which was a tough decision for me. A good PSU to be sure.
