If you are not working on a document or editing a video or just about anything that you might need to save then having a power cut should not do any damage, you might get a nag screen when you reboot saying windows was not shut down correctly etc but apart from that,It should hopefully not be to much of a problem.

Of course pressing the power button still allows your PC to shut down correctly whereas a power cut does not.

Have you thought of using an UPS (Uninterrupted power supply)that way you'll buy time in case of a power cut,type UPS into amazon and you'll find a fine selection as usual.That way you'll have time to save all your work.
