You got to have a better PSU than that - a $21 PSU will most likely blow up or short out on you and take your rig down with it. Believe me I've seen it happen on tons of occasions. This is what I think would be a better PC in that price range:

Both rigs are slightly over budget but you don't go cheap on the power supply, and a much better balance of components.

That quite a tight budget. What are you looking to do with this machine?

Only issues you have is the Memory (it would be best to have 2x 4GB Modules instead of 1x 8G), That PSU is iffy (Try XFX,Seasonic, Rosewill (hive series))

Not a big fan of AMD cpu (just can't beat that price)

I'm spanish, don't have anything except for amazon.es. You can choose components like you would in the us for 600 dollars and it will cost about 650 euros.

Looking for everyday usage and gaming. I chose 1x8gb stick for upgrading reasons. So that I can just put 3x 8gb sticks whenever I feel like it.
Whats wrong with this PSU? Have it in my current build (i'm building this one for a friend) and I've experienced no trouble with it. Unbeateable for it's price.

I have this PSU in my current build. For it's price, it works wonders. Most sold PSU in Amazon.es, high qualifications... Should I change it as soon as I can?

Is best do use Dual Modules, but like you said you wanna stick 8GB when ever you feel like it, then know that 16GB is the Max that AMD board will take. Also as others pointed out, that PSU is not the best of quality you may find that right now is great for Under $30 but in the long rung will cost you $600 (when some of your compoents fry). Just know your risks.
