So i currently have a 500Watt psu Gladias VenomRX and its starting to do very poorly

GTX 1660ti MSI Ventus OC 6GB
AMD R5 2600x
16GB DDR4 RAM 3200MHz 2x8
Windows 10 64-bit
500 Watt PSU
SSD 240GB
1TB HDD
ASROCK B450M Steel Legend

And im planning to upgrade to an RTX 2070 or 2060 Super but i dont know what PSU is good.
So i need your help on choosing a PSU that could perform good for OC too
 
I have never heard of the 500Watt Gladias VenomRX.
No-name PSUs are generally very low quality. They may fail under load with a power hungry gpu and cpu.

I wouldnt trust your current 1660ti on this psu, let alone a 2060 or 2070. A PSU upgrade is definately needed.

What is your budget for a new psu? What country are you in? I would suggest a Seasonic focus gold 550 or 650w.

If you're planning to run one graphics card, then a 500 watts power supply is enough. But in case you'll be running two graphics cards, a 750 watts unit is what you need to get.

None of those are particularly "good" options, no.

The MasterWatt 550W is halfway decent, and should be fine for that build..... but at that kind of pricepoint, I know PSUs like the CX550 from Corsair are available at stores in Indonesia.
