Is garam masala the same as curry powder?

I'm making a vegetable curry for dinner and I'm confused if I can substitute garama masala for curry powder. The recipe I'm following uses these spice ingredients:

1 T fresh ginger
1 T ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/8 tsp cayenne
1/8 tsp cardamon

I have access to all kinds of markets so should I just get a pre-packaged curry mix from an Indian grocer, Whole Foods, or Central Market?
