I would recommend this Thermaltake Smart series PSU if you have it available in a store within your area or can get it shipped to you, this PSU should also give plenty of headroom for future upgrades and costs $54.99 at Best Buy as of the time of this post.:        https://www.bestbuy.com/site/thermaltake-smart-700w-atx-80-plus-power-supply-black/6339087.p?skuId=6339087

Thermaltake's Smart 700 watt PSU is a pretty decent choice for a budget-friendly power supply, it is 80 Plus certified for upto 86 percent efficiency, consists of high quality components for reliability, a variety of connectors, and a quiet 120mm cooling fan.

It's almost as if efficiency indicates nothing about a unit's quality... Also, where did you get the phrase "high quality components" from? Smart 80+ uses such an outdated design that there's no way you can describe the internals in that way.

With higher efficiency certified PSU units, better quality components need to be added to achieve that level of efficiency (as a general rule). Thermaltake's Smart 700 watt 80+ Certified PSU is definitely not the best that you could buy, newer PSUs with better designs (even higher efficiency and even lower noise) exist, although for a budget build, you want something that is able to deliver the wattage you need, has basic safety features (short-circuit protection, Active PFC, and overvoltage resistance), is from a reputable manufacturer, and which won't break the bank. This PSU meets all of those checks and therefore would be a good choice for a budget computer, although @Trefil8 what is the budget that you have for the entire system and/or for the PSU?

 

If you have a higher budget to allocate for a newer designed PSU, then I would go with a CX750M from Corsair or similar:        https://www.bestbuy.com/site/corsair-cx-series-modular-cx750m-750w-80-plus-bronze-atx-power-supply-black/8324202.p?skuId=8324202

Its something you really shouldnt buy, 

 

Besides 700w is way too much wattage

Actually its a pretty poor one. 

 

Cost wise its fairly cheap, but its also a old design which is also low quality.

Excuse me ?

Higher than 80 Plus ? Because that's literally the lowest efficiency certification level, sure, if PSU can't claim even that it's likely a complete garbage, but if it's 80 Plus it doesn't mean anything, neither it necessarily means that it's a high quality PSU if it's 80+ Gold or Platinum.

And speaking of that PSU, it is garbage.

@Trefil8 Assuming you're in US, look at Corsair CX 450W for 59$, it's a decent budget choice. No, you don't need more wattage for this build of pretty much any gaming build either, but if you plan to upgrade the GPU it's definitely recommended to get smth more robust then, Seasonic Focus GX 550W for 90$ maybe.
