Logisys, Sunbeam, CoolMax, Raidmax, HEC, Apevia (and many many more) should be AVOIDED!!
I'm looking at this Logisys 550W here. $18.99. 25A MAXIMUM output from the +12v.
25A X 12V = 300W. The label on it states the +3.3v, +5v, and +12v can only output 400W, so really, it's waaay less than 300W. No way that is a "real" 550W unit.

Another Logisys 550W. Same thing!

Compare that to a more reliable, higher quality unit.
Even an Antec 380W is better than the Logisys units!
80+ bronze certified, 336W from the two +12v = 28A.

Antec TruePower 550W.
Max power output of 45A on the +12v rails = 540W.

There are many good PSUs out there, please do have a look at our many PSU reviews as we have loads of recommended PSUs for you to check out in there. What would happen if your PSU can't cope with the load:
bad 3D performance
spontaneous reset or imminent shutdown of the PC
freezing during gameplay
PSU overload can cause it to break down
