Question Is 500 watts enough for this build? Also RTX 2060 Super or RX 5700XT?

So I'm probably going to buy a new GPU soon, and right now I think I'm going to go for the 2060 Super. I was just wondering if I should upgrade my power supply if I do get this GPU. I have a 1060 3gb right now, so the difference would only be around 60ish tdp, but I just want to get some other opinions. Should I wait to buy another PSU later, because I don't want to spend too much in bulk right now, even though I'm hoping to take advantage of good Black Friday deals, or should I get one now to be safe? PCPartPicker says the estimated wattage of my build is 370, but I really don't know how accurate that is. I'll attach a screenshot of my build on PCPartPicker, but I switched out my 1060 for the 2060 Super model I'm hoping to get. Also, I don't know if I should get the 2060s or an RX 5700XT, since they're similar in price, and the 5700XT seems to have a little bit better performance from what I've seen. Which do you think will last longer in the market, and which is the better buy?

EVGA W1?

If so I’d replace it before the GPU upgrade as you don’t want to risk ruining that new GPU.
Alright, so do you think a 650w or 700w would be fine? I don't really want to spend too much as the card is probably already gonna cost me like 350, but I don't think this build is too power hungry, right?
