NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Name brand only.
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.

Been running 24/7 in a HP Compaq dt since 2009 no problem even with a graphics card. It's only 300 w and yeah , it is good.

Came in the stock unit, it is heavy sturdy and quite. Never heard anyone complain about Liteon.

Definitely, but in my case, it took my whole Dell PC, my table, my monitor which I really love.
