500W for Ryzen 5 2600 and RTX 2080 Super?

I have a 500W Bronze PSU and I'm wondering if that will be enough power for a Ryzen 2600 and RTX 2080 Super upgrade.

I am currently using the NZXT H510 and the following:

ASUS B450M Pro4 Ryzen 2600 T-Force 8GB 3000mhz 2 default NZXT fans 240ML CoolerMaster cooler 1TB WD Black RTX 2080 Super Ventus OC EVGA BR 500w Bronze PSU

Is my PSU compatible?

Will it work? Yes. Is a good idea to use it? No. Unfortunately you cheaped out on the PSU by getting one with zero reviews or information out on it.

Efficiency has nothing to do with how good or bad a PSU is.

It does help slightly with power costs. But you're right it shouldn't be the primary factor in deciding.
