[SOLVED] Is a 450 Watt PSU able to handle an RX 5700 XT or RX 6800 without any stability issues?

Hello everyone. I'm looking forward to purchasing an AMD RX 5700 XT or the newer RX 6800, even though there is somewhat of a price gap in between those two. I absolutely need to know if I can run any of those on a 450 W PSU. Mine is a Corsair CV450 with 80+ Bronze efficiency and it has the required 2x6+2 pin power connectors. Despite that, I am worried that the power draw will be too high and PSU wouldn't be able to handle it, since I don't have any sort of measurement tool to calculate it. I am currently running a system with an I5 10400, 16GB of 2666mhz Patriot Viper RAM, Gigabyte RX570, B460m-Pro4 Motherboard, a 1TB, 240GB and 120 GB S-ATA SSDs respectively, along with a 1 TB WD Blue HDD. I'm waiting for some opinions or suggestions on whether I can safely buy one of the aforementioned GPUs and not have to worry about anything. Moreover I would like to find out if there's any way to measure power draw via some sort of software.
Thanks in advance!

i have a 450w psu at the moment and its not doing well, im getting crashes on my pc, and they reduce when i undervolt my gpu but i still get them. I recommend that you get a higher wattage / better quality power supply mate.

i got a rx 5600 and a vs450w Corsair PSU
