I'd say no.

Go with Corsiar or PC Power & Cooling if you want a really good quality unit. Antec and OCZ aren't bad either depending on the model.

Sparkles are "ok".

But when your getting into the 700w range I'd only settle for PC P&P, Antec, or Corsair.

I exclusivly use Sparkle 400W for low to medium powered builds.
For the lower end of the spectrum, nothing beats a sparkle.

High powered builds are another story.
