NO! Logisys sells PSU-shaped objects that should never be connected to computer components if there is any possibility they will be plugged into an AC power source at the same time.
I would choose a quality PSU made by Seasonic (their own, XFX, some Antec), FSP (their own, some Antec) or SuperFlower (new Kingwin, Rosewill Capstone).

What are you needing to power? We can recommend a more specific model if you will list your specs.

oh sorry for not listing specs I forgot to

Intel core i3 2120
Geforce gtx 650 2gb
4 gigs of ram
1 tb Hardrive

Think thats about all thats needed right?

EDIT: In an old computer I own it has a 400 watt psu in that i can put in this one if needed.

Its an old PSU from Delta Electronics Inc.

A 380W Antec Earthwatts would run that rig 24/7 no trouble at all; or an Antec VP-450. They are both relatively inexpensive.

How old is it? Delta makes some excellent units especially for Antec. If it's more than 4 or 5 years old I would replace it though.

Newegg has the Corsair CX 430 for $19 after rebate. The CX series is a budget line but pretty much perfect for a low power build like yours.

The CX 430M is a modular version that also uses higher quality capacitors than the normal CX series so it's a better unit overall. It's $35 after rebate.
