A psu failure can take down your entire system. A cheap psu will have trouble providing stable power and can cause problems under load.

Problems with cheap psus and reasons you should never cheap out on the PSU are well documented.

With only 3 internal drive bays, you could certainly do better.

surprising I built on the ITX version of the case and that supports 4 drives 2 x 2.5 and 2x 3.5you would think the matx would accomodate at least that many.

Seems like a good deal and has 5 years warranty. It's also GOLD certified. I bought one.

I'm going to show up here and comment once again that you guys are spending too much on power supplies. I'm not an electrical engineer or anything, maybe I just have great luck. But I've been buying $5 and $10 power supplies for the past 15 years and I've never had a problem. Out of all of those, I can't remember the last one that had a problem, but if every single one had died once prior to the end of their life span they'd still be cheaper than these designer psu's that get posted all the time. And when I need more juice than a cheap one provides, I double them up with an adapter, the psu adapter is about $2 on eBay.
I always get a ton of negative comments when I post this sentiment but I've yet to see someone show me evidence that the cheap psu's don't work just fine. Feel free to enlighten me.

3 Things :
(1) Where are you getting $5 & $10 power supplies?
(2) Could you provide a link to this adapter?
(3) I do not see a link to the micro ATX case pictured or spoken about in the first few comments

Why does a tv deal with a dell gift card get listed as 'TV and $150 Gift Card for $799' but this is listed as $55? It's really 'PSU plus $25 prepaid Visa card for $80 (plus a bunch of cutting, mailing, and waiting)'.

Sounds ok but cases like mine only have room for one psu.

This is a good amount of overkill for builds these days really, even on the highest end. TDP on a i7-6700k is 91w and a GTX 1080 maxes out under 200w. Generally easy to find a decent quality $40ish PSU that will cover that just fine.
