Need advice on a compatible PSU to pair with a MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus and a GTX 1660 Ventus XS 6G OC. PC Part Picker states the MSI Gaming Plus needs an additional 4-pin ATX power connector. I also want to make sure the PSU can also power the 1660. The estimated wattage of my build on PC Part Picker is 299W.

My apologies if my questions are newbie questions, I haven't built a PC since 2011 and I just want to make sure everything is compatible before I make any purchases.

299W? get a 550 or better unit.
corsair CX series, not the green labeled units,
seasonic S12II in the 20W varieties only, the 50W and 00W units are not made by seasonic. these are my two budget choices.
seasonic focus G or the TX series from corsair are mid priced units with longer warranties
the seasonic prime or the corsair RMX or the EVGA G2/G3 series are good gold rated units.

Is the additional 4-pin ATX power connector for the MOBO only needed if you intend to overclock?
