Im playing Fallout NV awhile ago when suddenly our House lights even the outlets cut power.
Not actually no electricity but the lights it flickers (Slowly not fast flicker) and when I pull the power plug of the pc it goes back to normal. And when I put it back (turning on the AVR) it flickers again. It will work when I turn the switch on the back of the psu off/on a few times. It happened about 2 times this month.

Why is it happening?

Is my pc in danger?
It's working fine now again though..

Maybe a shortage issue.
Is the powercable of the psu put in a grounded socket?
Check whether the cable is put wel in the psu itself too.

Your link goes to a general site?

This didn't happen on my first computer, My cousin gave me this computer and upgraded it a lil bit.
So I think the socket is not a problem. ( im plugging it on the same outlet)

THROW THAT PSU OUT THE WINDOW AND NEVER TOUCH IT AGAIN!!! No seriously, that PSU is dangerous. 500W for $11 is asking for trouble!

Get a new PSU from a reliable brand (Corsair, Antec, SeaSonic, XFX Etc..)
