Im about to build my first PC and one of my friends gave me his old psu, is an EVGA 500w 80 + Bronce, so I was wondering if that is going to be enough for a ryzen 5 2600x, a GTX 1070 EVGA SC and 16GB of ram DDR4 at 3200. I know that you can use a psu calculators but there is some stuff I don't understand, so I came here with the experts with experience in the matter.
Thanks in advance.

Should be but not recommended if you want to overclock. At stock clocks and settings it should be fine. Consider on upgrading to Cirsair CXM Series if you want cheap and efficient psu.

The EVGA 500w Bronze is a decent unit, but for a GTX 1070 EVGA SC I would get something of higher quality. Not to say you can't run the EVGA 500w Bronze on a GTX 1070 EVGA SC.

The newer Corsair Gray labeled CXM units, as @KraskataBGPro mentioned, are much better in terms of quality and allow you do to some mild overclocking. Or if you have the money, the Corsair TXM or Seasonic Focus Gold series are also a great choice.
