Looks nice for a basic PC, but not for a high-gaming level PC.

Still a little fishy for a free power supply

Yeah, could be a dodgy one for $40/$0 (£20). A good PSU is usually $75-120 for one with good amperage ratings on the rails.

If your going to spend money for extra quality on one component, then it would be your PSU. It is highly recommended you get a popular reliable PSU. I've been using Antec for years, and after one of my PSUs passed it's 6th year in use it finally gave out. Antec is a popular choice and usually have very nice power supplies.

PCP&C are the best.... if you can afford it.
