A general rule of thumb is if the brand is unknown get a different PSU what's your budget for a PSU and what's your country? (This is so I can recommend you a PSU in your country as some countries don't sell the same ones)

PSU makes in Iran would be a great unknown for many but for a GPU with 8gb and DDR5 I would be wanting 650-700w in my PSU, 450w is cutting it VERY fine with no headroom and no matter the make may well lead to smoke and bang time. Also if you ever put in an SSD or more cooling you will have no issues with upgrades from a power point of view.
