How quickly do you want to start a fire? The cheap power supplies are cheap for a reason - they lack safety features, use substandard components and are serious fire hazards. Not to be dramatic, but you are risking your life using a cheap psu.

When buying a PSU it is important to get a quality unit as your whole system relies on it. Avoid those cheap units that claim to be 1200watts, as they are low quality, falsely rated (there is no way that a $60 no brand PSU will do 1200watts), and can damage your components. Get a quality unit from Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, or some other quality brand, avoid unknown brand names.


Hope this helps!

Power supplies are one of the most important (and mostly overlooked) components by people on the cheap...
Think of a power supply as the heart of your system, it pumps power to all your components, or it doesn't, or worse like others have said it can start a fire if it does.

Me personally I only trust PC Power & Cooling but the brands mentioned above are good too.

You also need to consider all your components and then get a power supply that is rated higher than that so that it can handle any possible future upgrades.

They are cheap for a reason. That reason being to separate you from $9. Not to give you an operational or safe PSU.
