Question Unsure of wattage required for this build?

I want to build a SFF PC for my friend as a gift. He is a very casual gamer, so I'm using older-ish parts to save money. I know it's not the latest and greatest but the specs are fine for the intended usage.

CPU: A10-6700
GPU: GTX 1650 (powered from pcie slot, no psu cable required)
RAM: 16GB DDR3
HDD: 2TB seagate 3.5" (might change)
Motherboard: https://www.newegg.com/asrock-a88m-itx-ac-r2-0/p/N82E16813157771

Does anybody know roughly how much wattage this system might use?
Anyways.. I'm trying to keep the system inside of an old game console case, if possible, so I would like to avoid an SFX power supplie (if possible) Pico 192W seems perfect if it's enough wattage to power the build.

Does anybody know if the Pico 192W would be enough? I have no clue how to calculate wattage.

you could calculate it here : https://pcpartpicker.com/
(Go to system builder and add CPU,GPU and other components)
And I'm using almost identical setup (65w i3 6100, 75w GTX1650) an.d I'm using Corsair VS450 80+ Bronze PSU. and I think the power required is probably around 200-250W

you might want to get something rated 100-150w above your requirements(or components might fail under load).
