    I would say take this one:

    It's quite cheap now and it's fully modulair. Also 80 plus gold is not that bad for that price. It's 450w, but for a gtx1060 that's by far enough. Also Corsair is a premium PSU brand. Cooler Master is a bit... meh... It isn't that bad... They Always say min of 500w, but then you take the safest of the safest way. If you really don't feel comfortable with taht 450w I would recommend to look at this list:

    Maybe am I wrong, but do you actually mean that you already have the PSU and want to buy the gtx1060, or you still have to choose a PSU?
    If You already have that PSU I think it's alrighty. The efficiency is a bit poor to me (around 82%) but if you don't have to pay those energy bills it's okay xD
