I am looking to buy a powersupply 500 watt or larger for under $80 CAD.

Please give me reliable suggestions based on my pc:

Ryzen 5 1400 @3.7ghz
8gb x 2 ADATA XPG 3200 Ram
Asrock B450m Pro 4
EVGA GTX 960 SSC 2GB
120gb Crucial ssd
1TB Toshiba HDD
CoolerMaster Q300L
3 Uphere RGB Fans

Thanks!
 
For a budget power supply under $80c this is what I found.

It is an oem unit. I have one running a Phenom2 x6, and GTX1070 for 3 years straight 24/7/365 100% load.
That is even worse meant only for extremely cheap builds. Look SS-ES in Tier D...

I heard that one isn't actually made by Seasonic. Is that true and should I still get it?
That is true but for your budget, the S12iii is the best you can do. Its not the best but more closer to decent than any other unit.
I would say, spend a bit more and get this...

Much better unit and should be more than enough wattage for your build.
