Should be ok, but no guarantees. Recommended is at least 550 watts. Your current GTX 1050Ti doesn't even come close to the power requirements of the RX 5600XT. I know you don't want to, but I'd recommend a power supply upgrade.

thanks for all ur replies ..... i calculated my pc power consumption without the GPU and i found it about 250 w i used
Power Supply Calculator - PSU Calculator | OuterVision

... basically that mean my psu could provide extra 250 for the gpu alone and i watch some reviews about the rx 5600 xt power consumption under heavy load ( 160-200 w ) less than 250 w so i guess i am still in the safe zone !

What is the 80+ rating? White Bronze or gold?

If you look at cards like a 1070 it has a 150w board power and 500w recommendation.
A 2060 has a 160w board power and 500w recommendation.

AMD may have bumped the PSU requirement up because of higher-end CPUs out now draw more power than high-end CPUs when the 570 came out.
