[SOLVED] Is my current PSU adequate?

I am about to build my first PC and I purchased an evga 650W G3 (80+ gold rating), but some PSU wattage calculators say that this is the bare minimum. Should I have gotten a 750W psu?
I don't plan on doing any major OC for the cpu.
Here is the list:

The custom part is a NZXT HUE 2 lighting controller (with the four 6 inch strips it comes with) and two 120mm rgb fans to replace the stock case fans
 
Idk what calculators you were using or how they were calculating; but from looking at the Tom'sHardware review of the Ryzen 7 3700X and the RTX 2070, I'd say that 375W is pretty darn close. CPU and GPU combined will pull around 300W. Then, there's everything else, which is usually between 50W - 100W.
