Hey everyone quick question, I was wondering if a 500w power supply would be enough for my stuff. I used a wattage calculator but I prefer to get people's input instead.

500w PSU

ATX Motherboard
MSI Armor GTX 1080 Ti
i5-10600k
4 basic case fans
16 gbs of DDR4 RAM
Internal SSD
Razer Deathstalker keyboard
Logitech "gaming" mouse
And a 27 inch monitor.

I dont know if this is the place to post this but, here it is let me know If you need any extra info.
 
I would say a high quality 650w minimum. The 1080Ti can peak at nearly 300w and a 10600k with overclocking can peak over 150w. Add 50 to 100w for the rest of the system and absolute worst case peak is 550w. Now add headroom as you don’t want a psu to be pushed to its peak and 650w is a safe choice. Just remember quality is equally important to wattage, don’t get a cheap 650w.

I'd say no.

Your MSI Armor GTX 1080Ti has two 8-pin PCIE power ports (75 watts PCI-Ex16 slot plus 150 watts per8-pin). That means it's max draw is 375 watts.
Your Intel Core I5-10600K is a 125 watt processor.

Just between those two, you're already looking at a possible power supply deficiency.
I'd be looking at a quality unit somewhere in the 700w-750w range.
