Currently I have a Ryzen 5 3600XT with RTX 2060 on a FSP Hyper S 500W, and I'm planning to upgrade to R5 5600 and RX 6700XT. Can my PSU handle it just fine? I watched videos and read a lot of reviews, and afaik I would use like 350-360W of power. A lil bit later I would upgrade that por Hyper S, but now if it can run the new system, it would mean that I can buy a 6700XT instead of a 6650XT
 
A full stress test on the R5 5600 pulls 152w add that with the 350w on the GPU and you are pushing the limits of the PSU. Thats not even taking into account needing power for anything else in the system.

Now granted thats worst case scenario, yes it will boot and probably play some games. But if you push it then no that PSU will trip. You also need to take into account how old and how used that PSU is, the more usage its had the wattage output will go down.

Good 650watt would be the least I would use for a R5 5600 and RX6700 with the RX6700XT is probs getting to the limits of what I would use but I would be more happy with using a 750watt just for the overhead that's left in the PSU max power output.

Gamer Nexus made a video like 2 yrs ago, a R7 3700X and an 5700XT draw 361W max. 6700XT has lamost the same draw, and the non X ryzens uses less. Even a 360W max is 72% usage on the PSU

yea I can't disagree with that, but personally like to have plenty of overhead left with the PSU, that's mainly because I can get the urge to add stuff later like sound card, HDD's and more Ram but that's just in my case not yours and just shared my thoughts.
 
If the PSU is about 5 years old, i would look into replacing it.

Its tier C in the PSU tier list. https://cultists.network/140/psu-tier-list/
Hyper S is Tier E.

A hard no for this unit. Poor quality, group regulation, missing protections and 230v only. You definitely need a much better quality PSU for your system.
