I have an XTECH 500W PSU that I bought for $120. Its model is JSP-500P08N. I was hoping to use it in my ryzen build and was wondering if it would cause any problems as I'm not sure if its as some would say a cheap chinese PSU. My specs are: Ryzen 3 2200g, 2x4gb 2666mhz Team Vulcan ram, 256gb Silicon Power A55 SSD, 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm HDD, MSI B350M Bazooka.
 
I plan on buying an RX 570 soon. But yes that's the PSU's model.
Then please don't use that PSU to power the RX 570. Not recommended for GAMING PCs. Please NEVER skimp or cheap out on the PSU. This is the MOST important component. I can't stress this enough. Grab yourself some high quality PSU from reputed brands like BE QUIET, EVGA, Corsair, Antec, Cooler Master, just to name a few.

I won't recommend that particular unit for your Ryzen gaming PC. Can you buy one of these similar models, from near your location, (assuming you have the budget, and you are willing to upgrade) ? You can also get one of the CORSAIR CX-M series of power supplies.
