Will a Ryzen 5 2600 bottleneck this 2060 super?

I am looking to buy this 2060 super: https://www.gigabyte.com/ca/Graphics-Card/GV-N206SGAMING-OC-8GC#kf

I was wondering if my Ryzen 5 2600 will bottleneck it at all (a minor bottleneck is okay as long as it doesn't affect performance too much).

I see several different people say different things about the pairing and I can't seem to find a conclusive answer.

Also I have a 500w power supply and I understand PC part picker says it's okay for the card but I was wondering if that was realistic?

That all depends on the game and graphical settings. There is not a blanket answer to this and any CPU can bottleneck any GPU under the right circumstances. Bottlenecking is not a absolute thing or a yes or no thing like it is made out to be.

Also it is 100% meaningless to even think about provided you chose your parts right and get what you want. You should chose the CPU for the FPS you want and the GPU(s) for the graphical performance you want. If you are happy with what you get and meet your goals then why worry about something that is not impacting you?

If it was anything other than something along the lines I said they are objectively wrong since your question is based on the false premises that bottlenecking is a yes or no thing.

Yes 500W is plenty for that set up unless you are leaving out that you have 50 HDD's or something crazy like that. Although with that said all PSU's are not created equal so you may want a better PSU. Quaility of the PSU matters just as much as the wattage.
