Should switching from a dvd burner to a blu-ray burner boost my voltage enough to worry about my power supply?

You'll be fine with switching.

Agreed, the amount of power a BluRay player is fairly small. When burning a BluRay disc it uses maybe 30 Watts, but then you wouldn't likely be stressing the computer very hard when doing that (i.e not playing a game).
