So I AM upgrading my PC as IT got burned by electric shock. From Ryzen 3 1200, Psu Corsair vs350 and old A320mk motherboard + 4gb+4gb vengence Ram to a new build within the same case listed below...
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Ygz6Dx

I AM little bit worried as I did some research on these parts and the PSU seems to be not a good idea. Will IT be able to OC and Play some games like Battlefield 5, NFS heat/Payback, Far Cry 5 or some newer games?

IT would be great to read some opinions and judgement on this specific build, eventually some other parts proposals.
 
Thanks for such a quick replys.
I need to give you some insight to the situation tho, as I already own the gtx 1050ti 4gb and the baracude 1tb from the last build (only parts that survived), Im not really planning changing them.
I can swap my OS licence to a new motherboard as well so money stays in the budget.
I've already made an order for:

Ryzen 1600 - around 110$
AsRock b450 hdv4 - 50$
G skills Ram - around 50$
Thermaltake litepower gen. 2. 650w - 50$

I can change that order however i dont want to go over 300$ limit.
Do you think its any good or should I change IT especially the PSU as I heard its a crap? I was thinking of Corsair 550w bronze PSU for a little $10 more but I dont know if its any better. Also the aerocool "600w plus 80 bronze Full Range" was an option for me with the same budget but I'm not an expert.

Should I change these in order to Play some games as I mentioned and be able to Overclock a little bit? I dont want to invest in crap I wont be completely happy with.
The ThermalTake Litepower is their lowest end PSU and I would avoid it. The Corsair CX (2017) is a good budget PSU, as is the Seasonic S12III. I would use the Corsair instead as it is a more modern platform. For the CPU spend the extra $10 for the 2600 over the 1600. It would end up looking like this.

The 2600 is cheaper than the 1600 and is faster. The 1050Ti at $270 is a ripoff. You can get a faster GPU and 1TB SSD for the same price. The Rosewill Photon is a good budget PSU, it is recommended by Anandtech for budget PSUs.

I would mention that unless your build was an OEM you will likely be able to transfer your OS license across like an "upgrade"....perhaps not, but that could save you some $
Also, unless you have a MicroCenter nearby I would certainly rather suggest the build jeremyj just listed.

The reason I mention MicroCenter is that they have that 1600 on sale for $79. For the $10 difference you have, go with the 2600.
Thermaltake isn't the worst budget PSU you could buy. I have had great luck with Corsair PSU as well. I have purchased a few of the cheap EVGA brand, but would not recommend using one of those past 50% rated capacity. TBH, it's a good idea to invest in a good unit from the start, but can understand budgetary restrictions.

With all this said, how was your unit hit/struck by a shock? Are you making plans or taking precautions to avoid that happening again?

I can probably go up to 350-380$ max on these as I need to add a new cooler and I forgot about it but still not a great budget I guess. The micro center and shops like that are not an option as I'm from Poland and do most shopping through the websites in Europe.
Due to a series od thunderstorms back in the days my extensions cord that provided power to my PC got burned and lead to pc Burn and now i bought a 40$ safe extensions cord to prevent IT.
Lets say ill get that ryzen you guys mentioned should I go all the way for a better PSU ?
