It depends if you are getting oil to engine or not. When you start motor do you hear a clattering on the top end of motor. If so, then you indeed probabably are not getting oil to engine. Easy way to tell also is pull off vale cover and see if you are getting oil to top end of motor. believe me, you will know if your are pumping oil, it will be everywhere. If you are getting oil then probably oil pressure sending unit is bad. If not, then oil pump is bad.

How bad is it to drive with a bad oil sending unit that is reading 80psi all the time?

If that is all that is wrong and you know 100% that the sending unit is bad, then my advice is to replace it. It is a cheap fix and if you do not replace it you have no idea what your actual oil pressure is. This could cause you to drive around with no oil pressure which would destroy your engine. Just replace it and then you can rest easy.
