Question Is a 750w 80plus bronze certified OK for a Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme 3080 (when paired with these other mid-range system parts)?

My current PSU: "EVGA Supernova B2" - 750w 80 PLUS Bronze certified

PSU product spec/detail from evga:

Most RTX 3080's have been said to run just fine with a 750w bronze 80plus certified psu, but I've heard some people say that an 850w would be recommended for the Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme 3080.
Given the other system parts I'm working with (listed below), will my current PSU be enough, or will I need to buy a new 850w for this graphics card?
Is the bronze rating on my psu a deal breaker here?

*My other parts:
Mobo: Asus rog strix B450-F
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 (with coolermaster 4 heatpipe tower fan)
RAM: 16 gb (2x 8gb DDR4 3000mhz CL15)
HDD's: 1x M.2 500gb nvme, 3x 500gb sata ssd's
1 monitor (ultrawide 3440x1440, 144hz)

(My thoughts: I assume I'll be fine with my current 750w if I get the Aorus Xtreme, but perhaps if I upgrade my mobo/CPU in the future to something like a ryzen 5900x, maybe only then should I consider an 850w or higher psu - thoughts?)

Thanks
