It will be fine in that pc as the pc is probably only using 400-500W so dw. Its because of the amperage on the rails or component quality as alot of the people here are repair shop owners even if there isn't a bad review (they only use it for a week) after a year of high load they may struggle. The psu's higher up the list you can expect to last 10+ years under heavy load with some having lifetime warranties so you never have to buy one again
