I'm putting together a part list for my first ever build and I'm unsure if the 550W PSU is gonna be enough under load or if I should go for a 600W PSU. The part list is showing an estimated wattage of 329W.

Any other advice on the build would also be appreciated, thank you.

go down to a 2060 and get a better psu. You don't want to get a cheap psu and a 2060 is better value than a 2070

Which power supply would be better in this case?

That power supply will work just fine for your build their nothing wrong with it.

I would buy it for myself and not worry.
