Actually take it from someone with experience on cheap PSU's. I bought a 400W chiefmax (paid $20 for it) that blew up in about 8 months. Don't chance it because depending on how it goes out it can possibly take out your board, CPU, and Memory all at once. I lucked out both times but I'm not taking any more chances.
Also if you have never had a PSU go bad you will know it just because of the smell. As soon as i started smelling that burned syrup smell I knew I had my 2nd PSU on its way out (fried the stock PSU too)
