I've had my current 600W PSU for about 5 years now, and I was just wondering if it still supplies a sufficient amount of power for my gaming computer to work well!

My current specs are:
CPU- i5 10600k

GPU- GTX 980 Ti

MOTHERBOARD- Asus PRIME B490-PLUS

RAM- Corsair Vengeance 16GB

PSU- EVGA BRONZE 600W

STORAGE-
250 GB SSD
1TB HDD

Thanks!

I think you are ok.
Here is a handy chart on psu requirements:

Because your motherboard does not support cpu overclocking, I think your cpu power draw will be nominal.

If there is insufficient psu power, I think your first symptoms would be display artifacts while gaming.
Great, thank you. Interesting you say that. Sometimes when I have been playing games lately, I see these small blue, green, and red lines going across my screen horizontally for a second... I am curious as to what that might be.
 
There are several possible explanations that I can think of:

  1. The game needs a patch.
  2. The monitor is failing.
  3. The monitor to gpu cable is loose or defective.
  4. There is nearby electrical interference.
  5. The psu is not delivering sufficient or constant power.

I see. Thanks very much for the help and response!
