I'd like to ask about what psu i should get.

My PC:

CPU - Ryzen 5 5600X
GPU - 1050 Ti - which im upgrading with the PSU to XFX 210 RX 6600
RAM - 3200 DDR4 HyperX Fury
MB - B550 Asus TUF M-E
PSU - Enermax 525W 80 Plus Bronze
SSD - 500Gb Kingston A2000 M.2
HDD - 2x 500GB WDGreen

I really dont know if 500W Psu would be enough for 5600x and a RX6600
Im not curently planning to upgrade more, when I will, Im planning to buy a 750W Psu, but I'd like to ask if 500W Psu is enough for it.

Should be enough but I would replace it when you can.

For the specs 750W is the minimum.
For a 300 Watt or less PC?
EDIT
74 Watt CPU under load, 132 video card less than 100 for the rest.

You think I could get away with Rx6700? It says it need minimum of 500W Psu, even my friend that has 3070Ti and a 7700K has 650W and the GPU has recommended 750W.

You would be adding about 45 more watts to the PC so in the 340 area. Still should work but I would still plan on replacing it fairly soon with a good PSU mainly because of it's age.
EDIT from what I could find that power supply says 480 watts on the 12 volt rail so 480 watts not 525.


For what the video card manufactures recommend that really doesn't matter as they have no clue what the rest of your PC parts are.
How would they know if your using a CPU with a TDP of 74 watts under load or a i9 12900K that was overclocked running on a custom loop that could draw almost 200 watts more including the extra from the custom loop.

Yea you're right about that, well I was planning to buy a PSU, but i just dont know which one and I think 500-550 would be enough, since I dont plan to upgrade till at least 5 years from now on, I'll replace everything in the next PC upgrade.

You think EVGA 550 B5 is good?
