With the temperatures fine, the PSU is the most likely culprit, given that it's a very cheaply made one of archaic design. It's not even a real 500W in post-Pentium III terms.
but i have a friend who has the same PC build and it's working, there is no problem with it so I got confused.

That's not how it works. Just because it's running doesn't mean it's safe or a good idea. Most people who drive drunk get home safely, but that doesn't mean drunk driving is a good idea or safe.

This is how you know a PSU has "no problem with it."



Even if the PSU is not directly the problem, the problem with a garbage PSU is that as soon as you have problems, you cannot properly diagnose it until you remove the junk PSU. So you might as well do it properly the first time and not go cheap on what is the single most important part of your PC.
