PSUs will kill me

So I've got a Zeb M450w PSU but was advised to get a new one because it's super low quality. What's the best I can get without it being too expensive? I'm already past my budget, so I can't really afford a lot.

Also, I'm only using a Ryzen 5 1400 and 1050 ti. Is it still a risk to use my existing PSU?

You should probably stipulate that you're in India. Most users here are in the US or UK.

I can't find any professional reviews of the Zeb M450W on English-language sites. In light of that I have to assume it's low quality as a precaution.

Done. Any opinion though?

It's the same situation as the earlier thread. Our first move is to look at Amazon.in, but those of us outside India see very different import fees from those in India, and we're not familiar with any other retailers in the country.

Just list the most affordable PSUs available to you with their prices and we'll tell you what we can about the ones we recognize.

Most importantly, is Antec BP350PS same as B350? Because Bp350 seems pretty good, while I can't find any reviews or even mentions of BP350PS.

Seems alot of those psu's are 4-5 years old (or even older). One of the newer ones seems to be COOLER MASTER MASTERWATT LITE 500W https://www.mdcomputers.in/index.php?route=product/product&path=68&product_id=6293 . I haven't seen a review about it yet but it has the highest chance to be the best amongst the budget psu's.

What is your budget for this psu?

I'm gonna go over budget no matter what, so just the cheapest possible that won't fry my CPU.

... cheapest possible that won't fry my CPU.

As long as damage does not occur due to power fluctuation(s), Corsair Builder 500.
Keep in mind that it is a selection to just avoid complete junk and not an endorsement.
