Hello!
I am going to build a budget gaming pc
i5 3470 (stock) with stock cooler
Intel h61 desktop board (most basic one)
8gb ddr3 1333mhz ram
WD BLUE 1TB SATA HDD 7200RPM
ATX CASE
Asus Strix GTX 960 4GB ( used but in the best condition for $120 )

Will a Antec VP450S 450watt psu be able to handle this specs without any issues?
The psu has 85% efficiency as well as silent fan and good components.

That's psu is not the best quality unit. For a budget choice I'd pick something like Corsair CX, S12ii or M12ii, be quiet pure power 10/11 or Seasonic G3.

Yes that is a much better choice but I am from Nepal (third world country) and there's not many options. So ill be happy with a 960 . I only have a 768p monitor thats why.

I could get the vp450 for cheaper and just wanted to know if that power supply can run my rig without any issues for 3 - 4 years.
Not overclocking at all.

I agree, Jeremy. At $40 after rebate, theSeasonic M12II is a crazy good deal for a trustworthy PSU.
Yes it is a crazy deal that should have costed more than $60 but we do t have that type of deals here. I can't even order anything from newegg because shipping costs 150$ +

Can you please tell me that a antec bp450s ec psu can safely power them? I am not overclocking at all.

IIRC, Antec power supplies are made by Seasonic, so I'd say it is still a better choice than $15 grey units from unknown manufacturers.

I posted this link earlier but you might have missed it. This is a review of the PSU that you are talking about.
