Overall the VS series is typically junk.
Is this in your budget?

For motherboards I would go with any b450 that has 4 RAM slots.

The VS is not junk. That is just people being snobby. Junk is unbranded chinese brands, not Corsair.
Although the VS is not the highest possible quality, it is still branded by Corsair and still gets a half decent review.
You get what you pay for and if you can only afford the VS for that price it's probably the best you can afford, then get it.
if you see a PSU called for example "funkijo" and its "1000watts", and costs as much as the VS - BUY THE VS

Those unbranded Chinese 1000W for $10 ones are in a category that is several levels below junk. I agree with your statement that if you only have a choice between the knockoff and the VS you go with the VS. For no other reason that it won't burn your house down the day you power it on. Instead in 1-2 years it might blow up your computer. For the added couple of dollars the 2017 CX model is superior in EVERY way.

If you are referencing this PSU https://www.amazon.in/dp/B00I5VSWAQ/?tag=pcp03-21 I would avoid it too. That is based on a very old design, you can tell by how much wattage is available over the 12V line, and won't be a good choice in a modern system. Modern PSUs will be able to provide ~99% of the stated wattage on the 12V line, that Cooler Master only does 70% which means is is from the mid 2000s.
