I want to get a 1660ti, but not sure whether my XFX TS series 450W Bronze PSU is gonna be good enough run it without any concerns.
Specs are Ryzen 3 1200 16gb GTX 1050ti
I do plan on upgrading my CPU/Mobo when the new AMD CPU's arrive, not sooner than that most likely, so I guess it might be a good idea to upgrade sooner than later.
For now though I just want to know whether I can get by without buying a PSU along with the GPU.
Thanks

If you go to PC partpicker.com and create your PC build, it will give you an estimate of wattage. I personally get a PSU with double the wattage it says because its hard to estimate wattage usage. Dont go with a cheaper PSU either. I have had bad experiences with the cheaper ones due to them being lower quality.
 
It would likely work fine. That card can draw over 50 watts more than your existing card under load, but I believe that's a relatively decent power supply and should still provide a good amount of headroom with the rest of your hardware.
