Honestly i've run through a million psu calculators and they all tell me different things. Some WAY over and some with just random numbers or non updated cards.
The build is as follows.
RTX 2060 (windforce oc 6g version) not yet bought as i'm deciding between the 2060 and the 1660 ti depending on the answer here, as i know my build can handle the 1660 ti, just not sure on the 2060.
Ryzen 5 1600 -stock cooler- game boost enabled via MSI game boost settings"
1 case fan 92mm
1 cd+dvd rw combo which can be sacrificed, it's old af and i never really use it.
2 SSD 240gbs and 2 SATA 7200RPM 1TB HDDs
And my PSU is This guy. EVGA 500w .
I do use a gaming headset and keyboard/mouse, and the only thing i'll be using this pc for is gaming. No rendering or anything of that sort.

CPU 65W, give 120W (very large estimate) for the motherboard and drives. the 2060 will consume 160W.
65 + 120 + 160W = 345W when the system is running at full drawing all the power it can. most of the time the system will be consuming far less than that.

that is one of the budget EVGA units. for that price there are better units with longer warranties

as two examples with a 5 year warranty
examples only shop around caveat emptor.

completely understandable I suggest you mark the warranty expiration on a calander and replace it sometime before that date.
in my book no warranty means replacement time for PSU's. literally the entire system depends on it, data and all.
