EVGA, Corsair, Cooler Master, and ThermalTake. These are the brands of Power Supply you want in a system.

Going with lesser known brands especially at the lower price point can be the difference between a working system and needing a complete replacement.

Your PSU is of the utmost importance, remember it is the only thing between your Power socket and components.

Get a good one.

I'm not saying those power supply units will definitely have an issue but overall are more likely and may not offer decent protection in case of an issue.

Bestec I have heard of, they are used by OEMs such as HP sometimes, however these may be different to what you can get on the shelf yourself.

You said that this will be for gaming, what system are you using this with as most gaming systems these days use bigger PSUs that 350-400W?

Too little power, get a bigger one absolute minimum of 500W and one of the good makes suggested.
