550 watt enough for my build?

Hey guys so I built my pc with a ryzen 3 1200 and a 1060(6gb) with 8 gb of 2400 mhz ram a while ago. However with more demanding games I would like to upgrade the ryzen 3 1200 to the ryzen 5 2600. I was wondering if the 550 watt power supply is enough to power this build. If I want to overclock my ryzen 5 2600 to maybe 3.9 or 4 ghz can I still use the same power supply. 

 

IMP: I have overclocked my ram to 2667 mhz at 1.35 volts and intend to keep it same as ryzen requires fast ram.

Everyone was a noob at the beginning, don't be discouraged by toxic trolls even if u lose 15 times in a row. Keep training and pushing yourself further and further, so u can show those sorry lots how it's done !

550W is kinda overkill, a good 450W unit is plenty.

No, "the 550" is not enough.

 

A good 550W like Cougar GX-F, Straight Power 11, Bitfenix Formula and Whisper M is. 

 

Without knowing the age, maker and model its impossible to tell.
