No, it is what you call an leader of the crappy PSU's... :p

go for a brand ...enermax, termaltek, hiper (made in UK)....make sure you got plenty of amperage on 12V rail if you have a peg video card with additional power connector........if you have a agp card check the 5v and 3.3v rail.........

i hope this helps,
