Mobo - Gigabyte B450 Auros Pro Wifi
CPU - Ryzen 7 1700
GPU - ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2060 AMP Edition (Trying to replace this with an RTX 3070)

PSU - Corsair 550W RM550x (Wondering if this needs an upgrade as well)

Cheers!
 
Yes, the minimum required power ceiling for a PSU running an RTX 3070 is 550W. Though please note that 550w is the MINIMUM, so if you start to experience issues like random shutdowns, etc, it could be the power supply not providing enough juice (the RTX series was known to sometimes spike in power draw for a brief moment). I'd go with a 600W to be safe but if 550w is the best you can get in your area, or what you have now, then it should be fine.
