Do I have to upgrade my PSU for any RTX 20 Series cards?

I currently have an RX580 with a 550W Seasonic PSU Gold (I forgot the exact model). The CPU I have is an i5 9600K, and depending on if I need to upgrade my PSU or not, I will overclock it to a constant 5 Ghz on all cores (6). I am looking to upgrade to at LEAST an RTX 2060 and I was wondering if my 80+ gold seasonic 550W psu will handle everything I'm trying to do?

an RTX 2060 will consume like 170 watts, and the 9600k at all core 5.0 will probably consume about 160 watts

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.


Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)
