Ryzen 5 1600 or 2600 alongside with RX580 with this PSU


So I bought a new PSU today which is the Seasonic M12ii EVO 520w 80+ bronze modular. Will it be able to run my future upgrades WITHOUT overclocking of course. I dont do overclocking.


Future upgrade:

Ryzen 5 1600/2600



Current specs:

i3 4160
GA H81M-S1
8gb ram
GTX 1050Ti
3 fans
2 7.2k hdd's


Note: I prefer Ryzen chips since they are much cheaper in my country and also, I will greatly benefit from the 6 core 12 threads of the chips when I am editing videos (I am learning and practising editing videos in Premiere and AE)

Seasonic M12II EVO 520W is a PSU designed in 2010, and it isn't made to work with modern computers made in the last 3-4 years or so.

You should swap it for an appropriate PSU which can handle the specific loads of this generation's hardware. Coincidentally proper PSUs for your system can be even cheaper than this Seasonic, which is expensive for no reason. For example Corsair CX550.
