Quality parts require quality power.

True, true. Looks like you have pretty good parts

I have crappy parts, on the other hand

Wouldn't my PSU not blow up if I'm not pushing/overclocking my system? I mean, I will only turn it on for like 3 hours a day, maybe...

Do NOT cheap out on the PSU. It can kill your motherboard very easily, and I've hear of graphics cards, hard drives, optical drives, and CPU's being fried. Basically your entire rig. You should not pay under $50 for a PSU, pretty much no matter what.

BTW just so u know mine was $225. $50 isnt much...
