First of all hello all ;

Gonna make some changes in my computer except my cpu which is intel i7 3770k gonna buy gigabyte B365M auros elite intel motherboard along with DDR4 16gb ram and for gpu gigabyte geforce rtx2060 super windforce 8g and gonna put them all in new case Cooler master mastercase pro 5 so the question is what kind of power supply i need i mean 500W or 500W+ and do i need extra cooling in this system thank you .

i didnt know that my new motherboard wouldnt fit with my old cpu so i need to change my cpu also now so what cpu should i get in this system thanks
 
As th ere are several 600-650 watt PSUs in the $55-$60 range, that would be my target. (I'd much rather be running a PSU at 50-60% of it's rated load vice a smaller one at 75-90% of it's rating, despite many folks advocating it's perfectly fine to run most at 95% of their rated capacity..)

As for CPU, if you choose a "K" series (which you can never overclock on a B365 board anyway), you now also need a new cooler...(DarkRock or Scythen Mugen 5, etc); many are happy with the somewhat thread-limited 9400F or 9600 which come with coolers, but, either of these would/should likely be a 'no streaming' system, what with zero threads to spare for any extra tasks while gaming...

If you have aspirations of gaming while streaming, chatting/ Discord , and watching youtube simultaneously on a second monitor, I'd consider a 6c/12t system like a B450/R5-2600 combo... (and personally, I'd prefer this to a 6c/6t system like a 9400-9600K, even if the 2600 is slightly outperformed in average/peak FPS simply for the more consistent minimum FPS levels (the infamous .1/1% lows) on the low end....
