  1. the 1060 will run on your pc just fine, as for your power supply, though the 1060 runs on 400w, its cutting it close, I am sure other will chime in, but personally I would bump that power supply at least to a 750w over that current 430w you have.
  2. Should work fine. Corsair CX series power supplies aren't great for running a gaming rig. However, the 1060 is a low power card and shouldn't cause any issues.
  3. Hey guys I found this power supply for a heck of a deal:

    If I added this to my order to you think havinga 600w would cover my power needs with this new card?

    Nah. The amount of power isn't the issue. The only reason you may run into problems is that the CX series is somewhat mediocre. If you are nervous about it, you will be much better off getting a higher quality unit. The new CXM units from Corsair perform significantly better. I suggest this psu if you feel the need to upgrade. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139147&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-PCPartPicker,%20LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
    Very good deal. But keep in mind that an upgrade may not be neccesary.

    It certainly has enough wattage, but it's another CX-series, which many of us simply don't recommend for gaming due to the short warranty, ancient design, and disappointing capacitor choice. Corsair much improved their budget series with the CXM-series (black and white text, no green), which uses better capacitors and ditches the group regulation.

    a gtx 1050 ti would be a better choice given the motherboard's cpu list
  7. Should work just fine, no reason to buy that cx600.

    Bear in mind that your CPU will probably limit the performance of the 1060, judging by your motherboard.

    Have you considered the 1050 Ti?

    Yeah I would say that would be a better option. Uses a lot less power also.
