I already have the PSU. It's deepcool DE500. It says it has a 350 watts total output and 500 watts peak. Is it enough for this build? Or do I need to buy a new one? If so... What wattage will be enough?

Ryzen 5 2600
Gigabyte b450m ds3h
16gb ram 3200mhz
Zotac gtx 1060 6gb
1 SSD
1 HDD
3 fans

Thank you to anyone who can help.

No. Peak power rating should not be considered

Get a decent 450 watt such as the Corsair CX450 or CX450m. But I would suggest atleast a decent 550-650 watt so if you want to upgrade to a better GPU down the line you can.

Stick to Tier B or C at the lowest. https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/psu-tier-list-psucultists.3624094/
Ok I'll get a better one. But do you think i can use the psu for the meantime on my PC for light usage while I wait for my order? Thank you
