NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

You NEVER buy a PSU from a company you never heard that manufactures PSUs.

If a PSU dies, can it take things like the HDD with it?

How long would it take for a LiteOn PSU to even die? Just because they aren't that good does that mean they will die faster? Also this is not my PC that has the PSU :) .

It can take anywhere from days to many years. It is all a matter of load and environment even quality PSU's can fail but most quality PSU's have internal protection that protects other components.

It's in a 3 year old HP computer. Do you think it would need to be replaced with like a seasonic PSU?

Hi - You have an hd7970, not a sound strategy to risk that level gpu
with a low end psu with Chinese caps, etc. You are playing with fire.

Your sys tdp with that gpu is approx 335w without oc, I suggest
a quality 550w (no harm in more) psu.

And yes, you were right on Seasonic or other quality brands.
