the budget is around 700 dollars, and the main purpose is playing low spec games.
I made a few compromises and its a bit over budget, but its good:

I don't recommend any gaming builds with an A320 motherboard because the A320 chipset doesn't support overclocking, which includes memory (anything past DDR4 2666 is OC'd with 1st-gen Ryzen.) Buy a cheap B450 instead even if you have to pay $10+ more.

That's a very good PSU, but I think you could save money there by going with a CX550 instead. Maybe use that if you need to for the B450 motherboard or something else.

No, but the specs look good.

80+ gold.
Dc-dc
Japanese primary caps
A lot of protection features
40c tenp rating.
40C temp rating doesn't sound too good to me, not for a Gold rated unit. I suppose their cheap price (which it's on sale atm) will be their biggest feature. EVGA once again lowering the standard. They don't have anything to compete with Corsair's CX series in the lower-mid-budget range. I suppose this is their attempt.

I really liked their B2 series.
