You don't have any PSU listed.

 

Either way, I'd get a Corsair CX450M or 550M as well as an Asrock B350 Pro4, it's a much better board than the PC Mate.

alright thanks 

welcome, remember if the PSU doesn't have any reviews (user reviews don't count) you threat it like a BOMB

 

also, if the reviews aren't very good

If you can't buy anything much better at least look for psu from at least a bit known manufacturer, like fortron rated bronze 80+ or chieftec  iarena if fortron rated for 80+ are too pricey. Any of those I mentioned will be better than the one you found. In my area chieftec iarena 400 w rated below 80+ is ~ 23 - 24 usd.  I personally would save up and get something better, there are good ones for around 40 usd, you are willing to buy for ~ 20 usd, you need 20 more, that's not very much even if you are in high school, you can earn that much.

No, get a decent quality PSU like Be Quiet Straight Power 11, Bitfenix Formula/Whisper M, Cougar GX-F

450W is more than enough or 550W.

 

Don't save too much on the PSU if you want your PC to last and not have unnecessary Problems.

Even "known brands" have qualitative bad PSU in their lineup. So recommending to "go in blind" is not recommended.

 

Because that leads people to get blinded by the label like bitwit, who repaced a perfectly fine PSU with a worse one that lacks protection and getting this:

I agree, but it gives him  at least a bit better chances to getting decent one. Not guarantee but a better chance. It's not his first thread about this matter, people already repeatedly recommended him good psu's and he keeps linking to shitty cheap ones, so I tried to help him within his budget.

going straight to the model and wattage like this gives him better chances:

So he should buy that no name shit  psu if the wattage is enough? I said he should buy from a vendor that's is known, that is it. IMHO he is tiny bit better off buying cheap psu from chietec or fsp then Apevia. That is my opinion, not a fact, but my personal experience backs my opinion a bit.

to make things clear, I said you should go over the model and wattage, not just the brand

 

because most brands have shit in their portafolios anyways.

 

If you say the model and wattage unless the brand decides to do some dumbshit like calling two different PSUs with the same name people won't get confused.

 

pretty much what @Stephan Payne said

I agree in general, not in this specific case of the op, he is not gonna choose wisely and will skimp on psu.

Again, I agree. But if it was me, I would not  buy Apevia  one either way:) 20 percent one star rating on amazon is not great.
