Nervous about psu

I just bought a PC from Cyberpowerpc. i5-2500k gtx 670 everything all good. Except I took the cheap route on the PSU. Saving $20 I picked a cheap PSU and now Im worried it will die out and ruin all the parts. I never heard of this PSU so I cant look up any reviews. Is this PSU as bad as I think it is?
Link to the only info I could find : http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/spec/getspec.aspx?n=POWERSUPPLY&v=700%20Watts%20-%20Standard%20Power%20Supply%20-%20SLI%2FCrossFireX%20Ready

    Hi - It does look like a sub-standard PSU as relating to quality PSU's with modern platforms.
    However, It should still be able run your system as is.

    PSU's are the last thing that should be skimped on, as a bad one can damage other components,
    yet many people do exactly that.

    I doubt very much it will die in 2 weeks. Is it a good quality PSU - NO,
    but is it capable of runnung your sys - YES.

    What you might want to consider is start saving for an upgrade(not watts - but quality),
    and plan on replacing in 6 months or so.

    Brands to consider Seasonic, Corsair AX, HX, TX series, XFX, PC P&C, Antec, Enermax.

    Post your sys specs if you want an idea of what power you need.

    Looks like its a Xtreme Gear 700W a cheap no name brand Cyberpower uses in there builds, so I would defiantly replace it with a quality unit as soon as possible.

    Here are a few I recommend, all units are built by Seasonic and come with a 5 year warranty.

    Hi again - When you're ready to purch., come back to the forum here (a lot can change in the next few months)
    and you can get an up to date recommendation. I listed several quality brands above, as far as power goes,
    your system will function nicely with 500w, so I'd go with a quality 550w unit, 650w & up if you're going to
    SLI/CF.
