Just out of curiosity how would you rate this psu on a scale of 10 compared with older corsair CX450/550/650/750 2017 grey/white label.
Isn't CX450 2017 still the latest model? Was there a revision after? I would place it between MWE v2 and latest Corsair CX. Only if the non-modular Neo Eco was available it's pricing would have been more better. But alas all good budget PSUs are unavailable.

I meant to say that now corsair CX450/550/650/750 series is not available anymore for buying(at least in India) so it can be practically considered as out of production & replaced by newer CV series which is definitely inferior to it.

By latest CX do you mean CX-F rgb series which looks clearly overpriced to me or you mean to say older CX series(which used to be available earlier) is still below MWE v2?

So when you said "I would place it between MWE v2 and latest Corsair CX" you were talking about antec neo eco model I asked about. That means as of now there is no equivalent of corsair CX450/550/650 in currently available budget models as CX650M though available still cost 6600 around which we can get coolermaster MWE Gold V2 650w & for a bit more Antec Neo Eco Gold 750w with 7 years warranty.

Is Antec Atom V450 enough for a NAS running pentium G620 & 3-4 hdd? I don't really want to spend too much as the mobo might be dying & in worst case scenario may buy a generic h61 mobo for 3k or second hand h61 mobo from TE for around 1.5k whenever possible as no hurry to build this NAS.

atleast get the Antec VP450P. The Atom isn't much different than the local brand PSUs

Its priced just a little under 2.7k. Are psu nowadays really have gone down that much in quality that even running a 10 year old dual core processor & a couple of hdd need at least a VP450P(for reference I used to have FSP Saga II for this config which I remember buying at around 1.9-2k back in 2012)?

It's just inflation.

I originally had a budget of 2k for the psu, is there any cheaper option than antec vp450p plus. What about Thermaltake Litepower 450W Black Edition, SilverStone SST-ST50F-ES230 v 2.0 - Strider Essential Series 500W or Deepcool PF450 450 Watt 80 Plus?

corsair's vs 450 used to be available for around 2.3k-but i think it has been discontinued now. It was a great choice for older systems that didn't require a lot of power.

Yeah & the current cheapest psu from corsair is around 3k which does seem to be overkill for a low tdp integrated graphics processor with a couple of HDDs only running as NAS/file server.

Those seem better than the Antec Atom. Could go for Deepcool PF450.

If during sale the prices of antec vp450p plus, Thermaltake Litepower 450W Black Edition, SilverStone SST-ST50F-ES230 v 2.0 - Strider Essential Series 500W & Deepcool PF450 450 Watt 80 Plus drops by different amount then what should be the priority order.

Guys, my Antec VP 450P is still going on strong & almost 4 months short of 8 years.
Can I get similar 450 watts or max 500 watts PSU under 3k now?
How is EVGA 450BR around 2600? or MSI Mag series which are coming with 5 yrs of warranty?

Avoid EVGA PSUs, they are relatively new here, so better to wait for a while and see how they do. Their BR series PSUs are bad anyways.
Refer this PSU tier list, I would not recommend anything below Tier C.
