Soooo... a bit of a situation.

I'm currently planning on building this system:

 

 

 

I've bought everything I need except for the gpu, cpu, motherboard, and ram. I just managed to upgrade my budget by a couple hundred bucks, and I think I'm going to upgrade to a 5600x for the cpu and switch the gpu over to a 3070 founders. Will the psu be able to pull the weight of the system, or should I buy a new one? (I've already purchased the psu in the list)

 

If the current psu isn't enough, what good for the money psu would you recommend?

you have to upgrade the cooler and also the power supply to a sweet spot of 700w~750w

choose from these:-

Well it's a B teir PSU, so I'd trust it to be able to put out 600 watts, it should be fine but we don't really have accurate and fully confirmed power usage figures for either the RTX 3070 and Ryzen 5 5600X yet, we can take a guess but won't know for sure until independent reviews that we trust are published. 
While the 600 watt rating is continuous, and it has a higher momentary power usage rating, it's not good practice to run a PSU right at the edge unless it's been well engineered for the task and fully characturised. If the parts are power power than we expect it'll be fine but if they use a lot of power you'll need a new PSU. 

Yours faithfully

Nvidia recommends using a 650W PSU so I'd recommend you buy a different one. It may be able to pull the weight, but if you buy a factory overclocked 3070 it may be not enough. It also gives you more headroom to overclock the CPU in the future. I don't know how tight your budget is, but maybe you should go for a even stronger PSU just in case you want to upgrade something.

I don't have a single PSU to recommend, just don't buy a too-good-to-be-true china PSU. I personally am really satisfied with my Corsair TX650M. It runs like a champ for ~6 years now. But the choice is pretty much personal preference.

Or... You can wait to see what Navi has to offer, if you can wait a week. I'll wait for some power consumption metrics for the CPUs anyways.

MOTHERBOARD: ASRock H97 Pro4 CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 @3.30 Ghz (-75mV Core // -5mV Cache) RAM: 32Gb (4x8Gb) Kingstone HyperX Fury DDR3@1600 Mhz (9-9-9-27)

GPU: MSI 390 8Gb Gaming Edition (-5mV // +80mhz core // +120mhz memory)  PSU: XFX TS 650w Bronze Enermax Revolution D.F. 650w 80+ Gold

STORAGE: SSD Samsung EVO 850 250Gb // HDD WD Green 1Tb // HDD WD Blue 4Tb // HDD WD Blue 160Gb MOUSE: Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum

MONITORS: Samsung CFG7 C24FG7xFQ @144hz // Samsung SyncMaster TA350 LT23A350 @60hz

CASE: Fractal Design Define R5 Windowed OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 Bit // Manjaro

Thanks for the advice everyone. I'm planning on waiting for black Friday or cyber Monday to buy all the expensive parts, so by then hopefully there will be some better metrics. Then i'll likely come back to check my suspicions.

Watchout for the B550 and new CPUs, it likely won't have a BIOS and might need a CPU too boot for a BIOS uodate too, idk if the B550 boards have 5000 series BIOS already, not sure. 

Yours faithfully
