Ah, Okay. And one last question: What will a decent PSU cost me?

No way. A good quality PSU like my Forton will cost him $35 roundbouts. And its not that power-hungry of a system, so it doesn't need a crazy PSU.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If your power supply gives you no troubles right now, then just leave it alone.

Yeah, is there any chance of my hardware being affected if the PSU gave out?

My friend's PSU recently failed. 2 wires connected inside the PSU or something. Needless to say, the PSU was destroyed and half the motherboard was *literally* fried.

That will almost NEVER happen with a good-quality/good-brand PSU though.
