Will my 500w work "vega 64 or 56 "

Vega 64 no.

 

500w is the official min for Vega 56 from AMD.  Note that Gigabyte has models of the V56 that recommend 650w PSUs, etc because of after market tuning.  So the specific Vega 56 card and how you tune it matters (undervolting is probably good, OCing is probably a horrible idea).

 

So as long as you confine yourself to AMD's stock power profile, then a conditional yes, depending on what else in your system.  I personally wouldn't, but that all comes down to personal comfort of running with little headroom on your PSU.

TDP is not the power draw of the CPU. TDP Means Thermal Design Point which is the max amount of heat the CPU will expell.

AMD Ryzen 3 3200G / Sapphire R9 290X / 16gb (2x8) Kingston ValueRam @ 2666Mhz / Gigabyte A320M-S2H / Kingston A400 120GB M.2 SSD / WD Blue 2.5" 1TB HDD / Cooler Master MWE450 / Aerocool CS-100 / LG 22MK400H-B 1920x1080 @ 75Hz
