Hi guys ! Im looking to upgrade my PC-

AMD RYZEN R5 3600
Zotac GTX 1060 3GB (Re-using my GPU)
MSI MPG B550 GAMING PLUS
16 GB DDR4 CORSAIR VENGEANCE RGB RAM
1 TB HDD 7.2k (Re-use)
1 CD/DVD R/W (Re- use)
Thermaltake v250 TG RGB

PSU : ANTEC VP 550P, it says 87% efficient on the box, has a 120mm fan ATX 12V v2.32. I have no idea what some of the info means
and I not quite sure if this is a good PSU for the new setup.

So I was wondering whether the current PSU that I have would be good enough for a few months til I get a new one?
Thanks

Doesn't really bare any relevance to the quality, it's just a representation of how power efficient the PSU is under certain loads.

That's just standard specification information. Nothing to worry about in this case.

Overall, It's not a great PSU. More for low end systems, however if the plan is to upgrade in a few months then you should be fine. Your GPU is also relatively lower end so is less concern. Just make sure whatever you upgrade to is a good quality one so that you never have to worry :)

Okay ! Thank you so much :) Can you suggest a good one if I'm going to upgrade my GPU to RTX series later on.
