    Buying a cheap 30 $ PC PSU is not worth it - even if you don't have a powerful PC, buying at least a decent one will be worth it in the long run, and here is why:
    - There are reports of cheap PSU's exploding, which if it happened would basically fry your entire PC
    - Cheap PSU's also are typically not as efficient as more expensive brand name ones ( like EVGA and Corsair ), which basically means they're wasting more power
    - They may also supply unstable voltage, which can damage your pc's components over time

    I agree a cheap power supply is the worst investment that you can make for your PC. Like you said they use cheap parts and they are a ticking time bomb. Especially in the summer months when it's in the 90*s, the heat puts a HUGE strain on the power supply and before you know it, the power sup0ply is smoking and your PC is fried.
