Question Should I Upgrade my 1060 Windforce 3gb to a 2060?

One of my fans on my Gigabyte Windforce 2X Fan 1060 3gb has decided to start wobbling and making a large noise. I would replace the fan but because I live in Australia the shipping may take a while so I've been wanting to upgrade to a 2060. The games I play are Valorant, League of Legends (not very often however), and Rainbow Six Siege. I do have a 144hz 1080p monitor as well. One of the concerns however is my power supply. I currently have a Versa 22 which I had gotten with my case:

I am unsure whether this power supply is suitable for my 2060 upgrade.

Thanks.

Other Specs just incase:

i5 9600k

16gb 2400mhz Ram

Gigabyte Z390 UD

500GB 860 EVO Samsung 2.5 SSD

2TB External HDD

Had this PC for 2 years

Hello there!
A 2060 super would help alot as the 8gb vram would also help for upcoming titles thus also a 3060Ti assuming it would be in stock else 5700xt which is compared with a 2060 super
Ps: Forgot you play esports so yea preferably 2060 super but yea 2060 would also be good

I was considering getting 2060 super but if I do I might as well get a 3060ti because they are very similar priced

The PSU is garbage I would not use it.
EDIT it doesn't even have the 8 pin connector for the video card.

You are going to want faster ram for optimal results with an upgrade of that magnitude on your gpu. You want to use that high refresh rate monitor as intended.

Your PSU should be replaced, but you could get away with adapters.
That PSU has dual 12 volt rails 14A and 15A so a 348 watt PSU even if it can put out the rated watts. One rail goes to the CPU the other the GPU, a 2060 can draw in the 160 to 190 watts depending on the model neither rail is designed for that.

RTX 2060 draws power from 1x 8-pin power connector, with power draw rated at 160 W maximum . 40 additional watts over the 1060 is doable, Ideal no not really, feasible yeah totally.

Op said 2060. Someone else added the super part.

9600k 119W avx load 62 watts full load no avx
2060 160 full load
the rest draws how much ? maybe 30 more watts?

250 watts while gaming... full load?

After a long time, i saw a cabinet selling with a psu... thats good for a casual system... but pls never cheap out on a psu... first get a good psu and then think of upgrading any other components unless u dont care much about short circuits, overloads, voltage protection... And also pls dont get the 2060, get the 3060ti or purchase the 1660ti for the time being and get the 3060ti later... the reason i say so, the raytracing on 2060 is ok for now, but i dont see it able to perform that well in future titles...

190 watts on this card.

We do not recommend ever using a 6 pin to 8 pin adapter as it's not our place to recommend unsafe products.

Look at the PSU it's the cheapest pile of crap they make.

I'm not really looking for RTX as I don't play those kind of games. I guess future proofing it with something like a 3060ti would be worth but again money is an issue.
