i would agree with getting decent PSU, idealy u would want to run your PSU at ~50%, but up to 80% its still fine during gaming (extra noise from psu fan)
your system draws up to 400watts, so 650-750watts psu is fine

Don't listen to any of the garbage about installing a custom BIOS. That crap can hit the road, this isn't BIOSmod and we don't make recommendations like that here. There is almost never a good reason to need to do something like that unless you are running VERY old hardware and are trying to install something much newer that needs a custom BIOS in order to support it.

And as far as GPU BIOS are concerned, if the card didn't come with the ability to overclock, there is a very good reason for it. If the manufacturer felt the card was capable of handling an overclock, rest assured it would have been built into the design. There are a lot of things that CAN be done, that SHOULDN'T be done, especially when it comes to hardware. To each their own though I suppose.

As far as the PSU goes, any GOOD 550w power supply is MORE than enough for any RTX 2060 non-Super model so long as it has at least one 8 pin connector. The fact that it has a 9700k is irrelevant. That's not going to make a substantial difference unless you're overclocking the CPU. If you are, then a 650w unit AT THE MOST might be a good idea unless you have plans to upgrade to a much higher tiered graphics card in the near future.

This, would be plenty for your system, and probably more than you'll need although it will afford you some measure of headroom so that the PSU never has to actually run in the upper 40% of it's capacity.
