Please read OP's post before copy pasting.

@op
Even a 1080 isnt enough for PUBG 1080p 144hz, can reach 90ish at med high tuned, anything below that isnt worth it.

600 Watt budget PSUs Battle - PC TeK REVIEWS

COOLER MASTER SMPS MASTERWATT LITE 230V 600W - 600 WATT 80 PLUS WHITE CERTIFICATION PSU WITH ACTIVE PFC

This is currently the most VFM PSU, IMO, the components present in it are only there in higher end Corsair/Antec PSUs.
But do note that buying a PSU, you need to take into account, how good it's service center is. Corsair has impeccable service based on experience, I have no idea about Antec or Cooler Master.
Still, Id reccommend that PSU, solely based on the fact that the internal components are better.
I personally own a VP650PM modular power supply from Antec, its also a good choice but Cooler Master one is better, IMO.

Look for Amazon Lightning deals for RAM Deals, you will be surprised how often RAM comes in the deals (talking about simple ValueRAMs from Kingston and Crucial, not overclocked 3000+ mhz RGB crap). buy two of those and OC them yourself. Runs stable

I am ready to spend around 7K for PSU. Any other suggestions?

After 2400 mhz, RAM speeds have diminishing returns even for Ryzen CPUs. But if you really want to go for it, go ahead with the corsair one suggested by Sunil.
Also, it doesnt matter how much you spend on a PSU, a PSU is a PSU, if total power draw is between 40-60 % of its max limit, AND it has good service AND it has good internal components, spending more than that on a PSU is just a matter of preference and aesthetics, you arent gonna get anything extra by dumping money on it.

Oh ok so CM PSU suggested above is sufficient for 1080 & i7-8700 under full load ?
