The only reviews on Newegg seems to be poor related to the power supply.

As a general rule, the bundled power supplies are garbage. Antec sometimes bundles okay power supplies, but that's the extent.

Get a good case, then a separate power supply, like the Corsair CX series (cheap and very good quality).

Don't skimp on the quality (not the wattage) of your power supply. If it dies, it COULD take everything with it when designed poorly.

Short answer:NO.

Logisys is a tier 5(not recommended) psu on this list:

I agree with maxx_power, Antec cases are the only ones worth buying that include a psu.

Also, the $110 FX-4100 is not particularly recommended for a gaming pc.
It is outperformed by the $68 Intel G630:

My rule of thumb for a gamer is to spend twice your cpu budget on the graphics card.
In this case, your total $220 budget is 1:1.

Split it to $68 for the cpu, and you can get a stronger $150 graphics card like a GTX560.
