Shortly put: no.

Long answer: I don't recognise that brand. Chances are they're one of the millions of cheap PSU manufacturers. It'll work... until it breaks and takes half of your system with it. I'd think about investing in something better, try any 600W+ branded, decent unit. A good manufacturer to look at is Corsair, but there are many more.

thanks for your answer,as for the psu it is not one of those cheap psu's,from the way it looks its a decent psu plus it has two fans a 120mm and 80mm so i guess it won't "cook" itself...
p.s. i was thinking to get an xfx psu if this aint gonna cut it.
