NO PLEASE NOT THE GAMEXSTREAM. It is utter crap. Give me a min and I will find a better one on that site.

EDIT: Get this instead. It is only a tiny bit more and you wont regret the fact that you did.

NCIX.com - Buy Corsair CMPSU-620HX 620W ATX Triple 12V 50A 24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply 120MM Fan 2X PCI-E - CMPSU-620HX In Canada.

Or if you dont want to spend any more get the 520W version.

NCIX.com - Buy Corsair HX520 CMPSU-520HX 520W ATX Triple 12V 40A Continuous 24PIN ATX Modular 120MM Power Supply - CMPSU-520HX In Canada.

They are in every way superior to the GameXstream.
