I recently bought a EVGA RTX 2060 SC Ultra Gaming Graphics Card for my computer since I'm upgrading little by little.

Just search on the browser for "PSU calculator " and see what power you need for that pc (you can also check what power you need with the future upgrade of the CPU and motherboard

The recommendation for that RTX 2060 is 500W and greater as it comes with an 8-pin PCIE connector so it has quite an overclock.

That CX 450W (can't see on shot if a grey label) is an OKish PSU but not a great quality one. I would get a better quality one or at least same quality but 550W.

On a relatively offtopic note, that 2-core Kaby Lake Pentium won't be a very good match for a 2060 I'd say. With that board I'd go with at least an i5 7600.

Will you be doing much gaming with this PC? I assume you do with that graphics card. With a MicroATX mini case you'd need good cooling and air flow/ventilation.

This was my first build so I didn't know much but now I plan on upgrading to a i5 8600k and buying a new motherboard and the Crystal 570x Case. The psu is the Corsair CX450 80 Plus Bronze Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Yes for upgrading to that CPU you'd need a new motherboard too because that B250 would only work with 6/7th generation of Intel CPUs whereas i5 8600k is an 8th gen. CPU and would at least need a B360 motherboard.

Again, that PSU (if the black/grey label) is OK, not the best, however as I said before I'd suggest you get a 500-550W good quality PSU.

The EVGA page for the card here recommends at least a 500W PSU as well.
