Hey guys, first post here, and this would be my first time upgrading a PC instead of just totally building a new one from scratch. I have a PC I built back in April not thinking prices for the new line of RTX Cards were going to be so good for the performance and I am planning on buying a 3070, problem is I just have this feeling I'm not going to be just picking up a graphics card that day which is going to suck because I would be saving from now until release to get it.

Right now I have:

Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk Max Socket AM4
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 6-Core/12-Thread 7nm Processor
CPU Cooler: Deepcool Gammaxx 400 V2 RED CPU Cooler 120mm RGB PWM Fan
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury RGB 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz
GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2060 OC 6G REV 2.0
PSU: Deepcool DA600 80 Plus Bronze certified 600W Power Supply
Storage: 1x WD Blue SN550 500GB M.2 NVMe PCI-E R:2400 MB/s W:1750 MB/s SSD
1x Seagate BarraCuda 2TB SATA 3.5'' 7200RPM Desktop HDD

If anyone can help me out or reassure me I'll be fine just picking up the new card, let me know....

All you need is a new power supply at most, i heard evga has good quality ones compared to corsair and other brands but idk for sure. It is recomended for rtx 3070 you get a 650 watt psu, however that is recommended based on very high end hardware just so you know. So a 650 watt psu is more than enough for your system and an rtx 3070

The reason I ask is the recommended PSU Nvidia says is a 650 watt. I know sometimes Nvidia says that "just in case" but I was just wondering is all. When I went to PC part picker and added a 2080ti to everything else I own, it says it hit maybe 520 watts max and supposedly the 3070 uses less power than the 2080ti.

from what I'm seeing at the retail closest to me, a decent 650 watt and a decent 700 watt are around the same price, I'd probably go with the 700 then, but thank you now I know i need a PSU as well, which is what I though I was gonna have to do, wish i didnt cheap out on it when I built it...
