Cheap PSU


This might be a daft question, but..

My PSU died playing Call of Duty World at War, bought a replacement (cheap as I could get 650w) which worked fine for a few days just in windows, but died 5 minutes in the first time I tried playing CoD. Is this likely just because I bought a cheap nasty one and I can just buy a higher quality and be ok, or could there something else killing them and I'd just destroy a more expensive PSU too?
