Is 430w PSU enough for GTX 1060 3gb and Ryzen 5 1600?

I am upgrading soon from a GTX 1060 3gb, fx 8320 and 8GB DDR3 to Ryzen 5 1600 and 8GB DDR4. Will I have enough wattage for my parts and if I do can I overclock? If I don't have enough wattage then how much should I need? Thanks

    430 is enough it it has the needed PCIE connection and is decent quality.

    It's enough , but I usually go with at least a 520-550w.

  3. AS SR-71 Blackbird said it is enough, but I can't emphasize enough that the operative word here is QUALITY! Is your PSU listed here:

    Unless it is there and in tier 1 or 2, I would not recommend using it to overclock.
