Currently I have and ATX motherboard, 1 m.2 ssd, 2 GB ram, 2 7.2k hdd, and a ryzen 2700x with a Rx 5700 xt. I was wondering, if i wanted to overclock if I would need to get a large power supply, I currently have a 500 watt. I already know I would need a large cooler than the stock one, but I am just curious if I would also need to raise my power supply, if I wanted to overclock my CPU, and maybe even my GPU. Any help is greatly appreciated.

More importantly what is the exact make and model of your current power supply?
Remember that it's not just about how much wattage, but the quality of the PSU.

Generally it's recommended to have a 600W PSU with a 5700XT - but a good quality 550W would likely be fine.
What would be your budget for a new PSU?
