Your system uses ~230w at a gaming load. So I'd suggest a 450w unit atleast. For the build's overall budget, you should be spending more towards a better PSU. For example, the bitfenix Whisper: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/cg4NnQ/bitfenix-whisper-m-450w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-bp-wg450umag-7fm

This PC is for my sister and will spend most of the time for drawing and watching youtube videos. Unfortunately I can't tell good from bad power supplies, what should I pay attention to?

Price.
Competition.
Voltage regulation.
Ripple.
Protection.
Platform.
Fan bearing.
Noise.
Internal capacitors and other component quality.
Active PFC.
DC to DC (better) or Group Regulated.
Hold up time.
Transient response.
Warrenty.
Cables and modular or not. And probably more.

These can be usually found through professional reviews, example: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/silverstone-strider-titanium-st1500-ti-psu,5324.html

Thanks, I thought it was not enough. Is a 500 Watts PSU enought because its mostly used for drawing and watching youtube and maybe sometimes Minecraft or Sims.

Now I'm confused. What am I supposed to get? If 500 Watts PSU is way over the top for my build.
