Hello everyone!

I just bought an MSI RTX 2060 which for the recommended PSU is 500W, but I only have a 470W. I tried out if it will be enough or I should buy a newer one, and it worked. I just turned on the PC didn't play yet. So my question is: Will the 470 W PSU enough(even if I'm gaming), or should i buy a 500W?
My current PSU is this.
My PC:
Motherboard: Gigabyte B75-D3V
Processor: Intel i5-3570
RAM: 8GB (plan to upgrade to 16)
SSD: Samsung 120Gb EVO
I also have 2 additional HDDs. A 500Gb and a 1 Tb.

(I also plan to update the CPU, and motherboard, and buy an M.2 SSD, but this has to wait a little. I assume if I do that I have to buy a bigger PSU.)

Thanks in advance!

It'll work. But with only 32A available at the +12V rail (384W), You may expect lower performance at best, shutdowns or reboots at worse when the GPU hits near 100% usage. If it were mine, I'd probably avoid it.
