500W PSU WITH A RX 6600

Hello! So I recently just did a upgrade from my old i5-4460 up to a i5-10400 with a new mobo, some new ram and a new power supply. I happened to get a 500w psu and was hoping to get a graphics card later on. I want to get a rx 6600 but am wondering if my psu will hold up, considering the tdp of the i5-10400 is 65W. Will I run into any problems in the long run or not?

I just built a PC for a colleague with i5 12400f and RX 6600 GPU combo. 

 

I've used the Seasonic Core GC 500W Gold. Works fine and it's silent. 

 

That said, what particular PSU do you have in mind?

6600 TDP is ...140W, and even AMD advise only 450W+ PSU, so you'd be good with 500W

If it's junk quality, yes and not even on the long run. What's the brand and model of the PSU?
