Default Re: 5.25" Psu To Power System + Gtx260?

The build quality on the few 5 1/4" PSUs that are on the market isn't all that great, and they simply cannot power very much. Some of them might not even handle a GTX 260.
Do you have of any Microatx power supplies that are 5 1/4" that have at least 38 amps of the 12V line? I've been looking at this power supply. It has 4 12V Lines @ 8.5A = 32Amps and it's 550W microatx psu but i believe it looks as though it maintains standard ATX width, which is an issue. Otherwise i believe it could power my system including the GTX260...

This is looks very good. Only 350W but with Dual 12V Lines @ 18A = 36Amps I believe it wouldn't have a problem powering the GTX260. It's also a Standard typical MicroATX dimension PSU.
