Good PSU for Ryzen 5 5600X?

I have an old spare seasonic focus gold FX650 (650W).
Is this enough for my simple needs or do I have to buy newer GX series?

I can buy a new seasonic focus GX650 to GX750 but delivery will likely take 2 weeks.
(I would rather save money so I can buy available RTX 3050 or amd/intel equivalent when they become available at an affordable price in the Philippines.)

Already bought:
1. Asus TUF Gaming X570 wifi
2. Ryzen 5 5600X
3. 16GB T force DDR4-3200 CL16 memory kits
4. 500GB WD black SN750 nvme ssd
5. 2TB Seagate hdd
6. Rakk Galura pc case
7. Rakk maris pro fan kits.

I will reuse the following parts:
1. Monitor: Lenovo legion FHD
2. GPU: choice of Asus RX 580 8GB, Asus GTX 960 2GB, EVGA GTX 960 2GB, or Asus GTX 650

You should have enough power, even if you use the RX580. The calculator on newegg says 600-699 watts with the RX580, so kidna close but you should be fine. If you want to upgrade down the line, a 3060 is actually under the power usage of a RX580, and a 3060 ti is just over it, so you can fit a pretty nice card in with that cpu. It's also a gold power supply, so pretty efficient and seasonic's are reliable. I would save the money on the PSU and grab a 3060 or 3060 ti (It's a lot better than the 3050 for the price.) Buying a 3050 to upgrade from a RX580 is almost no performance gain, all you get is DLSS and Ray tracing.

Thanks for the advice.

I assembled the PC and tried to install Windows 11 but failed due to 'unsupported hardware '.
I installed Windows 10 successfully.

Asus tuf gaming x570 wifi plus has default bios version 2802. After updating bios to latest version 4403, I was able to install Windows 11.
So far so good

“Unsupported hardware” most likely means that there are some settings to change in bios like secure boot. Maybe there is a tutorial vid somewhere that you can watch to help you out

Already solved that. As per AMD and Asus, bios update (where TPM is enabled by default) is required. I updated the bios and successfully installed windows 11.
