Hi,

I would like to know if my current (2or3yrs old) PSU can still handle either of these GPUs that I'm planning on buying.

I currently own a SeaSonic S12II Series S12II 620 Bronze.

and my current specs are:

Ryzen 5 3600
Hyper 212 LED Turbo
16gb
GTX 1060 6gb
3 HDDs
1 SSD
6 Fans
SeaSonic S12II 620w Bronze 80+ modular

Will the PSU be enough to handle those GPUs? Won't be doing any overclocking. Just plain gaming / Streaming

But will be planning on buying a brand new PSU (Seasonic Focus gold plus) soon after I get a 2nd hand GPU :D

I'm curious as to why you are choosing between the RTX 2060 and RX 5700 XT specifically. They're in different performance tiers.

The RTX 2060 is a hair slower than the RX 5600 XT. Once you bump up to the RX 5700 XT, you're actually slightly outperforming the RTX 2070.

It kinda depends on my budget I will have since I'm planning on getting a used one and most of the time only the 2060 shows up on my market feed however, if I do see a used or maybe a brandew 5700xt on my budget range I will definitely get that one instead of 2060 a brand new 5700xt or 2060 and even 5600xt is quite high on my country right now.
