We have a 2060 Super and a 550W power supply. We can run our CPU (i7-10600K with all power limits removed) and our GPU at the same time with power to spare. (We have the GPU set to a 100% power limit.)

At the moment we have six cores running msieve and the GPU running mfaktc and our wattmeter tells us we are using 350W. (That figure includes our super large display which uses around 50W.)

If you overclock the CPU and/or the GPU you might have issues. If you run a program that is highly optimized, like Prime95, you can expect to use an additional 100W or more on the CPU if you run the torture test on all threads.

You can use HWiNFO to get exact power usage figures for individual components.
