Sorry to hijack OP. I'm also in the same situation as you.

Currently using Ryzen 3200G and Thermaltake Litepower 450W. I already know my PSU sucks

I've saved enough to get myself a 1660 super and I'm looking to upgrade to:

Corsair CX550M Bronze Semi Modular
CM MWE Gold 550W 80+ Gold Modular

Both are priced similar at Dynacore.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
Again, I would say it depends on the specs/ components used in your computer. If you are looking at just the Ryzen 3200G, motherboard, 2 sticks of ram, and 1 SSD/ hard disk for storage, the entire PC should not draw more than 150W. Add the GTX 1660 Super in, it should be between 250 to 300W. The Thermaltake Litepower PSU should still manage. But once you have sufficient savings, step up to a better PSU.
