Well I also have all the peripherals as well including rgb keyboard mouse and mousepad. the 3 120m rgb fans with a controller. A USB powered audio preamp. Also I plan to do a small oc on the 2060 as well.

Think I should still be good? And also does my psu have the proper connections for the 2060?

Small overclock should be ok. Everything else is minor. Regarding the graphics card model you want, just check you can meet the pcie plug requirement.
I was just trying to get a MSI model. Its cheaper than some of the others and has rgb on the front lol.

Should that be okay for my mobos pcie?

Also whats the differance in models?
