So my dad got me a new pre build pc.

The pc specs are :

Intel i5 11400

16 gb ram patriot viper steel 2x8 3200mhz

Asus prime h510m-d micro atx

No GPU since it uses the igpu

And a <Mod Edit>-cheap psu which I will replace.

So I was thinking about buying an rtx 2060 to pair up with my new PC and as for my psu I will replace it with a Corsair TX Series 650 W 80+ Gold.

With that being said , I'm a beginner in pc building and so I ask you whether everything will work ok with this upgrade or if I should worry about something. Also my pc case can fit a gpu up to 330mm.

Pc part picker says everything is ok but I cannot be sure.

Sounds good. Not sure if you are buying new or used, but the RX 6600 seems to be a bit faster at around the same price.
I'm buying new , I'll check the rx 6600 out too. I have one question though, does the micro atx limit performance in my build? I dont get the difference between standard atx or micro atx.

The difference between ATX and mATX is an extra pci slot that 99.9% of PC owners will never use. With that said the limiting factor with that Asus board is the VRM's which are weak meaning your system will throttle down as soon as they start to warm up. If anything on that build should be changed it's the board (look at a B560m board with decent VRM's) and psu ... and add an aftermarket cpu h/s that will fit inside that case.

I don't think the motherboard should be replaced unless you are upgrading to a K-series CPU. I don't recall anyone having VRM cooling/heating issues with a non-K series Intel i series CPU.
