I wouldn't be so concerned about using a cheap PSU, if it is quite new. But once it gets over a year old, I'd be paranoid about it.
But when you can't replace what you might loose it puts a little different spin on things.
I'm not concerened about useing one, just OC'ing with one.
I do have a cheep 385w that is brand new doing the job now. I did cave and bumped it from 800 to 1066 with no other changes. i didn't feel to bad about that and it gave me 1.80GHz @ 2.40GHz with no strain at all. I'll put this one in tomarrow as there is to much involved to start that today. But we are good to go!
