Hello,
 
was just wondering if I would experience any problems pairing a 3060 with a Ryzen 3600 on a 550W GA power supply. I know people were having problems with these PSUs when running either a 3080 or 3090.

    EVGA Product Specs require/recommend a "600 Watt or greater power supply" for all cards in their RTX 3060 Ti lineup..Use the EVGA Power Meter or the more detailed OuterVision Power Supply Calculator (best) to estimate your particular PC's wattage need and see some recommended PSUs.

    * Corsair Obsidian 450D Mid-Tower - Airflow Edition * ASUS ROG Maximus X Hero (Wi-Fi AC) * Intel i7-8700K (Delidded, TG Conductonaut) @ 5.4GHz* 16GB G.SKILL Trident Z 4133MHz * Crucial MX500 M.2 1TB * WD Black 500GB (x2) * Seasonic M12 II 750W * Corsair H115i Pro * EVGA GTX 760 SC * Dual-Boot Win7 Home 64-bit/Win10 Home 64-bit (20H1) *

    I wouldn't trust it for very long..... but that's just me.
    Typically it is a good idea to keep a 25% overhead  of what you expect to need in total wattage.

    +1. As recommended above you need a beefier PSU.
