Online, everyone seems to think 500W would be enough for an RTX 2060, but a small minority insists I get a 650-700 Watt power supply. When I use a calculator, my computer build + an RTX 2060 always says: recommended PSU wattage 450 Watts. Nvidia recommends 450W as well.
Is my 520W 80+ bronze Seasonic PSU enough for an RTX 2060?


PSU is M12ii

CPU is i5 8600K, and the RTX 2060 is overclocked (1710 MHZ)

If you don't plan to overclock and your CPU doesn't have a really high TDP, it will work. However, if you are going to overclock or have an AMD FX/Threadripper or Intel X99/X299 CPU, you should probably get a 650W PSU.
