Everything else fits fine, except PSU.

From your store, bare minimum PSU i'd go for and that is only because you have GTX 1050, is Corsair CX450M,

Though, i'd be more comfortable using Corsair TX550M since it has better build quality than CXm series,

You can cheap out on every other component inside the PC except PSU. Since PSU powers everything, it is the most important component inside the PC. Also, while the PSU warranty covers the PSU itself and you can RMA the blown PSU, the PSU warranty doesn't cover any other component the PSU fried.

Most people learn the hard way not to cheap out on a PSU when low quality PSU blows and takes part of it or the whole system with it. Even entire houses have been burned down because of the fire low quality PSU caused when it blowed up. Also, it's far cheaper to go with good quality PSU now (RM340) than buying crap quality PSU (RM69) and after it blows and fries your whole system, buying a complete new system as well (RM2000+ or so).

Like it or not, if you want your PC to work for years to come without any risk of fire and/or damage to your components, you need to hand out some money for good quality PSU. I'm not talking that you need to go with the best PSU available at your store, e.g Corsair AX760 which costs RM1600+ (link). Corsair TXm i linked above costs RM339 and is more than enough for your PC, both wattage and build quality wise.

However, if you go with "budget" Imperion PSU, please, do record a video when your cheap PSU blows up since i like to see some good fireworks. Just like seen in here,

If you still think "budget" PSU is best for your PC, i'll be waiting a video from you with good fireworks.

hey thanks for the reply.Im kinda going over my budget but im willing to spend a little more .So, is the link: https://www.lazada.com.my/products/corsair-cx-series-cx450m-450w-80-plus-bronze-modular-atx-psu-i204787303-s253529402.html good for like just gaming for 2-3 hours a day? I mean it will not blow up right? Also, I came across some psu https://www.lazada.com.my/products/i406852693-s587990990.html?spm=a2o4k.cart.0.0.29bd49fblkWXqA&urlFlag=true&mp=1

Any thoughts about some of these psu?Or is the Corsair CX450M good enough? I heard the super flower ones are pretty good but cant tell if its fits with my components.

Reason why i said i'd use CX450M only because you have GTX 1050, is because GTX 1050 is 75W GPU and if you'd add the rest of your system to it at 200W, in total, you're looking at 275W max. 450W Corsair unit would do since the load on PSU isn't that high and that mediocre quality unit should handle the PC's load without issues. But if you'd have 100W+ GPU, e.g GTX 1060 (120W) then i'd be comfortable using 500W range PSU.

You can scratch Corsair VS off the list instantly since it's the worst PSU series offered by Corsair and it's even worse than CXm series. As far as Super Flower goes, they make very solid units and depending on who you ask, either Seasonic or Super Flower is considered the best PSU OEM in the world. (I vote for Seasonic.)

While Super Flower Silver ECO lineup is the cheapest PSU line they offer (much like Seasonic ECO/ECO Plus), they still have better build quality than Corsair CXm series. Here, i'd go with Super Flower Silver ECO 500W unit instead,

store link: https://www.lazada.com.my/products/super-flower-silver-eco-80-silver-500w-i406852693-s587990990.html

Though, do note that Super Flower unit works only in those countries where 230V electricity is in use. In 120V electricity countries (e.g USA), you can't use that unit. Corsair CXm series unit can be used worldwide without issues.
Also, with Super Flower unit, you'll get fully-modular cables and extra 50W output (500W max) compared to the Corsair CX450M semi-modular design and 450W output.
