You have 600W. AMD recommends 600W, I have read 550W will do. Congrats.

You may have an issue with the power supply connectors that come with your PSU. The 5700XT, I believe, requires two 8 pin connectors. You may be best advised to ask DS tech support, who know the PSU best, how to do that. So-called 6+2 connectors can be put together to make 8-pin, but do you have 2 of those? There are 6 pin to 8 pin adapters, but I really don't know the best way to go.
