It depends on its wattage.

No

Even if you have to work the corner, find another 30$, it's not worth it

all PSUs under 30$ are going to be complete horse *** and will eventually die and take your expensive components with it

on that note, how important are your components to you and what are you key components? (CPU/GPU, other expensive ***)

This is the cheapest I'd recommend which is currently $36 after rebate. Although if you look at the price history graph, it will go down to $25 regularly. Horse poop they are not. This is good quality. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cmpsu...

I can't believe you would even post diablotec or hec. Niether of those can even supply their rated power. At least go with a antec vp 350 or 450 which is $23 and $31 respectively. http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=62871&vpn=VP350&manufa...

I would save up some more money, and get a reliable PSU, such as the Corsairs or Antecs posted. An extra $10 now can save you hundreds down the road.

It has nothing to do with making me feel better if you buy a shitty psu the chances of killing your hardware are high i agree with samuelspark that is as cheap as it gets so i would suggest you save more money.

When you build a system never skimp on the psu its the most important part of the system. As mentioned previously if you get a psu that can't handle the load it will fail and will take other parts with it.

Sorry if i made i sound worse then i wanted it to sound :(  I guess i will just wait for the VP450 or take my graphics card down a bit and get the CX430. I seriously do apologize for what i made it sound like.

The Corsair V2 Builder is NOT a good PSU, especially if you plan to stress it. It was made by CWT, not Seasonic, using some inferior Samxon capacitors from a line known to fail early. This information comes from HardwareSecrets then onto the badcaps.org forums. Get the Antec VP-450 (built by FSP, another good OEM) or save up for the Delta-built Earthwatts.
