That is PowMax power supply, it seems. I have seen screwless 400W case and power supply by PowMax for $35 on a recent computer show. I bought one 300W case +power supply for $30. I am pleased with it. But I believe this is not a good deal for PowMax power supply. Their 300-400W power supplies are less than $25.
BTW I doubt that anything from "Computer Geeks" is a good deal.

This deal Owns, I have bought 2 and I have heard from others that they are awesome. Find a 400 Watt for $25 and post it on here if it is a good deal.

And here is L&C (ex Deer) for $20. This is OK power supply in the same category as PowMax.

And these are all second class power supplies just like Codegen or PowMax. You can even buy a whole case with 400W Codegen for $40 or even less.
I am not saying $50 PowMax is bad deal, just that this is not Enermax or Heroichi, you can find it cheap. It might be good, I have one and I see no problem but I would rather use 350W Enermax than 500W PowMax if you depend on the performance of your power supply.
By the way check pricewatch yourself.

I can never remember, with an Athlon, is it more important to have alot of current capability on the 5V line, or the 3.3V line?
