The M12ii 520w is a very old design, but it's not bad.

The RTX2060 draws less power than something like an RX580. The M12ii wouldn't be my first choice, but I think since its currently working and shouldn't be a danger, I would keep the PSU until PSU prices return to normal.

Thats good to hear i got scared while reading other posts that the m12ii is bad. Maybe ill wait a little when the prices drop or ill upgrade both my PSU and GPU at the same time. I have one more question, if i upgrade my gpu to 3060 is the focus gx 550 enough to run it? Sorry im not very knowledgeable in computer stuff just the basic ones.
