Is any psu with a high enough wattage good enough? Opinions wanted

I want to build a computer and I am planning on buying the case and PSU used off my mate as he has no use for them so I will get a huge discount and save money. I was going to pay around £40 - £45 on a new 600w PSU. I was just wandering if using a cheaper 700w PSU which was made more cheaply will be able to run a good gaming computer. I am going to pay him about £30 - £40 for the case, fans and PSU.
