    you already have what you need,cx500 v2 is not a top tier psu

    but it will do the job until you can replace it

    Is there a site/software for me to check how many watts I need to check this?

    You helped me a lot, I'm thinking of getting a gtx1060 6gb now. Do you think it's the best option of those you quote?

    look at the minimum psu wattage

    500w is more than enough


    you can also go to pcpartpicker, and enter your specs


    it gives a wattage estimate
