Hello, guys I'm having issues in buying a compatible psi for my MSI MPG z390 gaming pro carbon.
I can see that I need 8+4 cpu pins to get extra 12v for extre-
me overclocking. SO PLZ SEND ME A LINK OF A PSU WITH
600-750 W AND IT'S NOT EXPENSIVE.

Bad news almost all PSUs that will be good for high end overclocking are going to be expensive, 100 USD and up. On top of that the current global situation has made quite a shortage on power supplies so supplies are low and expensive.

As far as the 8+4 pin, you only need that 4pin if you plan on extreme overclocking

Ooooooooooooof
 
No.

As I said the 4 pin supplemental power is not necessary for the computer to work, it will power on and you only need that 4 pin if you plan on extreme over clocking.

If you want a good PSU then I would suggest

Corsair TXm or RMx,
Sesonic FOCUS GX, GM, or PX series,
EVGA G2 or GM
