What is the brand and model of your 600watts power supply?

Power Supplies are not all made the same way, a generic "600 watts" power supply could have a max combined power of only ~300watts, which is way lower than a good power supply that could be delivering a combined power of around ~550watts.

A few things to keep in mind:

  1. Im pretty sure the AMD FX-6300 used DDR3 memory so... Your memoery should not be DDR4 3600 (uless you have an extra pair of sticks).
  2. I never heard of that PSU, and I couldnt find much info about it so I can not really said if its good or not.
  3. If was to build a PC today I would look for any of this 4 CPU and in that order (from good to awesome value) Ryzen 5 2600, Ryzen 3 3300X (best cheapest CPU for gaming if you can find one, but lacks of the 2 extra cores and threads of the 2600/3600), the Ryzen 5 3600 (sometimes goes on sell, lowest i saw it was $175 if I remember correctly), or the Ryzen 7 3700X.
So you should see whats the best value the day you purchase the new components. Heres one example of what I would get if I was to add a PSU:

~$50 more for the Ryzen 5 3600 (it does not seems to be on sell right now).
~$157 more for the Ryzen 7 3700X.
~$19 more for DDR4 3600MHz (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jBZzK8/gskill-ripjaws-v-16-gb-2-x-8-gb-ddr4-3600-memory-f4-3600c16d-16gvkc).

Another thing to keep in mind B550 motherboard should be around the corner, so if price is right I would get one of those instead (read and watch some reviews first!).

If you feel you don't need the PSU just ignore it and get a more powerfull CPU if you want.
