Your PSU is low quality and based on corsair that make this PSU's there are for office pc's and not gaming pc's. I would not upgrade with any gpu before upgrading the PSU first. If you play at 1440p and overclock you cpu you should mostly be fine. Your best option should be to pick a 5700XT that have identical performance and save that 120$ sell your Ryzen 7 and maybe get a Ryzen 5 3600.

Can tell me a good budget oriented PSU? Also ryzen 5 3600,that's 3000 series. I didn't know my motherboard support 3000 series. But im short on budget so if i overclock my ryzen 1700 to 3.7 ghz, will it still bottleneck the gpu?

The price difference between 5700xt twin fan and rtx 2070 super twin fan is less than 30 dollar in my country so i decided to nvidia because of ray tracing. Also want to say, if i keep my current psu, will it damage my gpu or is it just performance issue?

If you play at 1080p yes it will still bottleneck (of course depents of the game if it is GPU or CPU dependent mostly) . If you play at 1440p try to get it at least 3.8-3.9Ghz. Also expect only crashes with this CPU+Ray Tracing. With Ryzen 5 1600 3.8Ghz it depends on the game i was crashing after a certain amount of time at 1440p until i switched to a better CPU and it stopped so i believe this feature its not only GPU demanding but CPU too. I did the mistake to buy a VS psu to an 4 years old pc that i had to take the PSU for my new and the motherboard was dead after 1 or 2 weeks. Dont cheap on PSU it connect to all your computer components it can damage anything. Take a good quality Seasonic focus plus or Corsair RMx with 10 years warranty and buy the GPU later. Still for 1080p the 2070 super will be overkill and bottlenecked you better pick something weaker and cheaper like 2060 super or RX 5700.

It just not for gaming, I'm learning 3d animation, so im buying for both. You scared me at your mobo died. I don't want my super expensive 2070 super to die lol. Here i have searched few psu. Antec, Thermaltake and corsair are the only big brands sold here in my area. Corsair gold plus psu with 650 watt, is it will be good enough? Its non RMX. Another onensame voltage, it says RM650X? Or any above brand better?

The minimum i would go is Corsair TX650M (the grey one 2017 version) but you will only get 7 years warranty rather RM650x that will give you 10 years with 10-15$ price difference.

Ok i will get rmx650 then. Thank you very much. Also do you think my mobo will support ryzen 7 3700x? Because i want that to be my next big purchase if it supported by my mobo

Yes just update the bios before you buy the CPU. I run my Ryzen 7 3700X with Gigabyte AX370 Gaming K5 it has identical vrm's with b350 gigabyte boards and bad vrm cooling solution. Still the VRM's at full load are around 70C while the max that gigabyte say its 125C that the VRM's can handle so its totally fine. I didnt try overclocking and probably i wont with this motherboard but anyway the 3000 series boost almost at its max speed.

hello stefan, sorry to bother you again but can you tell me how good is COOLER MASTER MWE GOLD 750W SMPS compared to corsair rm750x? As rm750x is out of stock. Im in no rush i can wait but if cooler master is just as good, i will buy cooler master
