Greetings. I already have pc with power supply - Evga 600w (100-B1-0600-K2) 80plus bronze. I wanna buy rtx 2070 super, but i saw in recommendations for this videocard needs 650w. I dont know what to do.
my pc:
i5 8500 (i7 8700 in future. without oc)
16gb ram
ssd - 1
hdd - 1
fans - 3 (120mm)
 
You are likely ok.
Your psu has the requisite 6 and 8 pin aux graphics connectors.
Just do not buy one of the highly overclocked versions of the rtx2080 super that needs two 8 pin connectors.
Together, with the pcie slot, that amounts to 300w.
The i7-8700 is a 65w tdp processor that will not be overclocked.

Your psu is not one of the evga best units so far as I can tell, but it should still be safe to run.

What is your current graphics card?
What is your motherboard?
What kinds of games do you play?
You could very well be more cpu limited than you think.
Run this test:
Run YOUR games, but lower your resolution and eye candy.
If your FPS increases, it indicates that your cpu is strong enough to drive a better graphics configuration.
If your FPS stays the same, you are likely more cpu limited.

I play Battlefield 5, GTA, Resident Evil, Metro Exodus, Far Cry, The Evil Within 2.
For me 60-70 fps is perfect) But i want strong graphics card for future.

I would not consider the EVGA 600b enough to safely power a 2070 super.

Wattage is alright, but the 600b is one of EVGAs lower-tier models and is not designed for higher-tier hardware like a 2070 super.

What is your budget for a new PSU?
i hoped this power supply gonna be enough. but if i need new one ... i dont know ... maybe 70-80 dollars?

by the way, someone have thoughts about why nvidia recommend 650w for rtx 2070 super, when this graphics card have lower tdp than gtx 1080/1080 ti, and even rx 5700 xt?
