Need Help Choosing PSU

Hi, I am brand spanking new to these forums and need help upgrading my system. My specs are down below. My question is, if I plan to upgrade to a newer video card soon (either a GTX 1060 or 1070) will I need to upgrade my PSU? Also would a GTX 1060 or 1070 be too much for this system? Would it bottleneck? Should I settle for a GTX 970 or 980?

    you don't NEED to upgrade the PSU.
    if it's working now, it will continue to work with cards you mentioned.
