Hi,

Need valuable suggestion on selecting the right Power Supply for my Computer. Have chosen few based on my Budget and I can go up by few more 100's if that really counts.

System Spec's

ASUS Prime B350M-K Board
Ryzen 1300X Processor
16 Gigs Corsair Vengeance RAM
1050 TI 4 GB Graphics Card
1TB HHD

Choice's I have made on power Supply

Antec Atom V450
Antec BP450P Strictly Power
Antec VP450P

My budget was around 3K
 
The wattage you need is mainly determined by the graphics card you will use.
Here is a handy chart:

Your needs would be satisfied with as little as 350w.
But to allow for a future graphics upgrade, it is best to buy stronger.
The psu will only use the wattage demanded of it regardless of the max capability.
450w is about right.

As above, do not buy a cheap psu.
Antec is generally ok, but some are better than others.
If you can, buy a t least a tier 3 unit from a quality list such as this:
I do not know your pricing.
