That PSU is cheap, and most likely poorly made. Keep it if you want all new hardware in 3 months+.

I agree with @FadedCrown. 330 Watts is hardly enough  and I've never even heard of the brand, and also AMD recommends at least a 450 watt PSU for the RX 560. If you need a good deal on a PSU, I'd check out EVGA's B-stock section or something  similar from a known manufacturer

Specs: CPU: AMD Ryzen R7 3700X @4.4Ghz, GPU: Gigabyte RX 5700 XT, RAM: 32 GB (2x 8GB Trident Z Royal + 2x 8GB TForce Vulkan Z) @3000Mhz, Motherboard: ASRock B550m Steel Legend, Storage: 1x WD Black 1Tb NVMe (boot) + 1x Samsung 860 QVO 1Tb SSD (storage), Case: Thermaltake Core V21, Cooler: Noctua NH-D15

Because the components draw power, now the RX 550 serie recommends having 400 watt PSU, so yeah. Step it up.

Also, if you have the money I would consider a $60 B350 motherboard, $80 of DDR4 RAM and a Ryzen 5 1400/1500X/1600 if you can afford it.

probably, but soon after I'd get a new PSU, my system has a 4790k and a 1070ti that is overclocked on a 450w PSU so your system should be fine if you swap out the psu within the next couple of months :)

Kind of an easy thing to say 'If you have the money', because that's almost always the limiting factor in any pc build/upgrade

I am saying that is the next logical upgrade path, but that is way before PSU at this point.

Surprised you have only 4GB RAM. Should upgrade that too to atleast 8GB. Another 4GB stick won't cost you a fortune.

This. @not so Important are you running dual channel or single?

ugh uh here a single 4gb ddr3 1333mhz module cost 24 euros ?

For me that is $27.19, which in 2018, 8 GB is the standard for these types of builds. I would get another stick ASAP.

 

In the future I would save your money to get a B350/B450 board since AMD is supporting the AM4 socket for a while.

Quote people who dont know what theyre talking about. "if its not corsair or evga its garbage lol im good at computers"

Fujitsu is very, very far from some no name garbage. If OP's machine is an Esprimo like i think it is, their PSU is 80+ gold rated. The problem is that its most likely also proprietary and wont be able to be replaced.

@not so Important just buy a GT 1030, itll perform fine for the majority of stuff in 1080p, probably not maxed and probably not with 16x MSAA or whatever on but itll run games fine with the 2400

 

it is esprimo something

It's a slight indicator of something not being a hot pile of garbage but not having 80+ bronze is a big red flag and not being from a major brand is too (i know deepcool makes other good products but they're not known for their good psus), I would personally not trust this psu.
