Does the 1660 need more than 500 W PSU

Will a MSI 1660 Graphics Card paired up with a Ryzen 5 2600 work on a 500 W power supply? Its 6GB and 1530 Mhz core clock. I wont get smoke on first start up right?

Most of the time for a mATX, I will choose a 450W Corsair CX, a cheap PSU ($53/45 pounds) and it will run just fine.

500W PSU is plenty for the rig. PSU's only provide the amount of power that the components draw. No rules of Physics are broken so do not worry about the concept that a 500W PSU could conceivably go above that.
