Depends on the situation.
But they are ok.

Look at power supply guide linked in signature.
I would never purchase one for my own computers, but they are trust worthy enough to say they are ok.. They aren't the best, they aren't the worst..

Well, like I said, they aren't the worst and they aren't the best. But they are a good choice if your on a tight budget or you are building a low end machine. However, if you have the money and your building a not so low end machine then I suggest looking at some of the other models and brands listed..

Honestly (and I think Ste will agree with me here) I think its worth it to spend a little more money to get a high grade unit, such as the PCP&P units that we have. Check out the PC Power and Cooling Silencer 610.

Or if you want to go a bit cheaper, FSP and Antec are excellent also.

So basically if a power supply is not good it will not output as much power or will increase the chances of my system being short circuited?

that is adequate
what are the rest of your system specs?
don't get a $50 psu if you have high end components
