I have a 500w psu, help me figure out if I'll have enough power for 6600 xt

That really depends if the PSU is good quality or not, so if you know the actual brand or rating or model or something..

Any questions?... Quote so I get a notification. In troubleshooting, I'm not always experienced.

I'm quite decent at fixing/recommending upgrades/new PC builds. Or explaining. (or copying from Google)

PC:

Ryzen 3 1200 | 16GB DDR4 3200Mhz | B450 | GTX 1050

PCs I used before:

Pentium G4500 | 4GB/8GB DDR4 2133Mhz | H110 | GTX 1050

Ryzen 3 1200 3,5Ghz / OC:4Ghz | 8GB DDR4 2133Mhz / 16GB 3200Mhz | B450 | GTX 1050

prebuilts can cheap out on things that don't seem important,

 

you can try check the brand or rating by looking inside the case if it's possible to see the PSU just by opening one of the sidepanels..

Really though to tell whether it's gonna work or not. I'd try to find out the PSU model either by looking for it in the prebuilt system's specifications or by removing one of your panels to check the PSU's branding on the side like @podkallsaid.
