im upgrading from r9 270x(died few months back) im thinking between 2060 and 5600xt. Amd served me well over past 5 years so i want to go with amd again i guess.

my power supply is corsair vs 550 so wonder if its enough to handle 5600xt or not and my cpu is i5 4690/k which is 5 year old as well and im tired of waiting for new nvidia amd releases my monitor is 60hz (1080p )so i dont mind bottlenecks as long as it hits 50-60 im fine with it.

priority games
witcher 3
Red dead online
Gta online
horizon zero dawn
and cyberpunk maybe.

How old is the VS unit? In reality, I'd ask you to source a more reliable PSU and with a little more headroom when dropping in an AMD based GPU since they tend to draw more power than their Nvidia counterpart.

Please include your system's specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Case:
OS:
