deathawk: Sure, Cheap is great if you don't want the following.
Reliability
Future upgradability
Preformence
Im pretty sure you will replace a cheap PSU a **** more often then you will replace any quality Power supply.
But its not my money so buy what you want.
Let's not get carried away, just because it's not the best does not make it suck.. Tons of PSU's are reliable, and have enough power for future upgradeabillity..

But why would you spend money on something that DOESN'T have a good name, compared to something that DOES? It makes NO logical sense to do so.
