A cheap bar is going to eventually break if tossed down hard lots of times. More than that the issue for the Olympic lifts is that the bar is a bit different. A powerlift or regular recreational weightlifting bar needs to be fairly stiff, an Oly bar needs a bit of spring in it. It also needs that the weights can spin around.

If you've a limited but not completely broke budget, it's best to get a good bar and then cheap weights.
i have two bars. ones cheap as ****, the other is a little better...

i have more plates than i need 600lbs+, and i dont do heavy training at home, so i dont really need them...

if the bar breaks, i really couldnt give a ****, lol...

i may just buy mats and wait until my **** breaks
