Doesn't look too bad, how much is it?

You want high amps on the 12v rails and you have 20A x 2 so thats pretty good.

SGD?

You could have gotten a better one for the money, but it doesn't look too bad.

Amperage is basically what to chck for, but also look for efficiency. Anything above 80% is golden

Its ok... only 26A on the 12+v rail. Cant say anything about the quality and stability of this PSU. Never heard of it.

You want to judge a PSU by its amperage on the +12v rail(s), efficiency and weather or not it has a PFC. Pfc's help with power utalization, making for a more stable and efficient PSU.
