See, I was thinking about that, if i have an APU with no discrete card then only around 100-150 watts will be used. Im changing my build to trusted brands. Corsair power supply(80+) and Gigabyte mid tower(24.99 cant best it).

The real problem is not the case but the psu. The psu not only current but it also converts AC from the wall to DC that the computer runs on. Poor psu donot do that very well. I voltage ripples will destroy the parts in the computer.
