Hey guys, i'm planning to change my cpu and mobo

I5-9400f to i5-12600kf
Gigabyte B360 HD3 to MSI Pro Z690-A DDR4

I was wondering if my current psu which is 600w is enough for the new cpu and rtx 3060/ti (later) ? i'm not planning to OC at least for now
 
Filled in a PSU Calculator.

1x 12600KF
1x 3060Ti
1x NVMe drive
1x 7.2K HDD
4x 140mm fans
1x 280mm AIO (just in case you might have it)

This comes down to a recommended PSU of 519W, so 600W should suffice, but it's cutting it close. I don't know if your current PSU is a quality PSU (that delivers 600W sustained) or if it's a budget PSU that only delivers a 600W peak load. If you want to play it safe, upgrade.

Currently i have 1660 ti, planning to get air cooler for the new cpu not AIO, and have 3x120fans and 1x140 is it enough for 600w ? I will upgrade for sure when time comes to get the 3060

Just input your system specs in the link the previous poster gave you. No idea if this ia complete, but from what you said I get this with a 3060Ti:

But really, you are the only one who can say what external drives etc. you got.
