I know these kinds of posts are everywhere, but I need some help. I want to know if my certain type of PSU is sufficient for an RTX 3060.

I have a Cooler Master MWE White 550W. The wattage should be enough I am told, but I need to know if this PSU will fail on me because I overloaded it. Here is the link to my current power supply. My CPU is a Ryzen 5 2600, I have 16gb of ram, and nothing else that draws significant amounts of power.

Thanks for any help you can give

You can try it, 550w is what Nvidia recommends for the RTX 3060 (non ti) but the RTX 3000 series is known for huge random power spikes under load which will shut off your PC if your power supply cant handle it, there are probably ten posts about it on here each day. So you can try your 550w and if you keep getting shut down during gameplay then go out and replace it with something better

wasn't the spikes fixed tho? I just know I've been running a 3070 with a 500w psu for 3 weeks and didn't have any issues.
