so i have asus motherboard with 4 pins for cpu but i can barerly find psu with 4 pins that fits my build I keep finding power supplies with 8 pins for CPU, so my question is can i use those with 8 (4+4) pins on my motherboard or do i have to find exactly one with 4 pins
 
Yes, you can split the 8 pin in to 4+4 pin and use it. That's why it can be split in the first place.

Usually PSUs with only a 4 pin EPS connectors are very old or crappy by now.

What are the system sprcifications?

Where are you located/ from where are you trying to buy the PSU?
 
These would be the best options I could find at a reasonable price:

Seasonic Core GC 500W 80+ Gold:

Cooler Master MWE V2 550W 80+ bronze:

The Seasonic is the better unit of the two, but the CM is decent as well.

I'll leave this Seasonic Core GM-650 too... it's a bit more expensive, but 650W will give you more headroom for future power hungry upgrades:
