Default +Cyberzone 400W Power Supply - Good choice?

I am buying a case that comes with this power supply for only $8 more.
Is this a good PSU or should I spend the extra money to get a different one? What's the catch with this one? Seems to cheap.

Any suggestions?

-thanks!

It is a pretty basic PSU which justifies the price. Not idea for windowed cases because of the looks, but it provides enough power for most needs.

I am guessing the major 'cons' are linked to heat and sound levels. You normally pay for quieter and cooler supplies...

Alright....thanks for the replies. The case I'm gonna get is windowed, but I don't want to spend a ton of money on a PSU. What PSU would you recommend? I'm thinking the most $20-$30. If that's possible.


Thanks alot!!
