OCZ FATAL1TY 750watt, Is it really that bad?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Okay so when i built my computer at the start of the year i didn't know too much about which parts are good/bad and I didn't do much research into the stuff I was buying.

My friend has told me that the OCZ FATAL1TY 750watt psu I bought is likely to go faulty and damage my system, its been 5 months now and theres no problems yet.

so is there a good chance that my psu will become faulty and damage my system?

Thanks,

PS: considering you could run your whole system on a 550W I really wouldn't even worry about it...
