It's a 1050ti and 65w Ryzen cpu. Minimum recommendation would be a decent 350w psu, but that's OEM sizes. For an aftermarket psu a Seasonic 400w or Corsair CX(2017) or Corsair CXM 450 is probably the easiest to come by especially if considering any overclocking.

The Masterwatt series (from everything I've seen) seems to be firmly mediocre. It's not what I'd call 'good' quality, but it's not 'bad' either. It doesn't compare to the V series at all.

The CX 450 would be a better choice.

Very surprised at there being no Corsair or Seasonic units, those along with the CM and TT are the widest market brands there is. No, I seriously doubt that it's a misprint or mislabeled Corsair unit, more like 's cheap knock-off aimed at trying to fool people with brand recognition. Like putting a Mercedes badge on a Toyota.

Your best option now is to give a budget, and maybe some links to stores you somewhat trust that'll ship to your address without costing an arm and a leg for shipping and we'll see what's available. The CM Masterwatt might not be the best unit, but it might just be the best unit you can get locally.

Came back for report after searching like a creepy guy :v
Found this FSP HEXA+ 550w +80 ( never heard of this brand ) but looks like a lot of people are buying it here in my country ..
also found no corsair no seasonic no supernova
The only available brands are :

Power LC ( German )
FSP HEXA
Thermaltake
Coolermaster
:/ what do you think ?

LC Power is usually OEM Huntkey, so they are quite cost effective but most models really aren't that good. There's a few I believe made by CWT that are borderline mediocre.
FSP is an actual OEM, so the Hexa is made in-house, but it's a very old design, at least 6 years old and was before the time of 80+ ratings. The Hexa+ is newer, but not much better ,but at least a 80+ rating.
That leaves the TT and CM, of which the Masterwatt seems to be the best overall choice. It's a modern design, decent efficiency, decent warranty and by all accounts at least mediocre, might be slightly better. Out of all the options, it's the one I'd trust the most.

@tensa01

First line of that says quite clearly, even if I don't read/speak German, 'Office Series'.

You are using a 420w psu on a system that sees maximum wattage use of considerably less than 200w. I can guarantee that if you slapped in a good sized gpu that LC Power psu would fry if pushed anything close to rated power. There is a huge difference in a office used psu which has slow transients and draws and a gaming psu which sees almost instantaneous large draws.

Think of it this way. Your fishing pole has 10lb test line. You use it all day, every day, to catch fish no larger than 2lbs. Even the occasional jerk isn't going to snap that line. If you were catching 8lb fish everyday, even a slight jerk is going to snap the line.
