    GTX 1060 & GTX 960 Power Supply

    Hello all, I'm new here!

    I have some questions for experts here regarding PSU for GTX 1060 and GTX 960

    My i5 build:

    Intel Core i5-3550 @3.3GHz (3.7 Boost)
    2x8GB (16GB) Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3-2400 @1600MHz
    Zotac GTX 960 2GB/GDDR5 OC'd (Clock:1300MHz/Mem:1900MHz)
    1x 2.5' 1TB 5400 RPM HDD
    1x 3.5' 320GB 7200 RPM HDD
    1x 3.5' 500GB 7200 RPM HDD
    5x120mm Case Fans
    1x DeepCool 350 RGB LED (2 strips)
    Super Flower SFX450W Bronze 80+

    I'm planning to replace the GTX 960 with GTX 1060

    I have a spare Galax GTX 1060 EXOC 6GB/GDDR5 from my previous build was using a Corsair CX600 before (I sold it without the GPU)

    Can this PSU handle the GTX 1060?

    Here's the PSU's specs:

    And I'm planning to use my GTX 960 for my OC Fun rig

    Core 2 Quad Q9400 @3.2GHz (8x400MHz)
    6GB DDR2-800
    POV GTS 450 1GB/GDDR5 OC'd (Clock:900MHz/Mem:2000MHz)
    1x 3.5' 1TB 7200 RPM HDD
    2x80mm + 2x120mm Case Fans

    Here's the PSU's specs: (This PSU has been rock stable with this OC'd rig for almost a year)

    I'm planning to buy a new PSU maybe in a month or two (Super Flower SF600P14XE Golden Green 80+ Gold) and putting it in my i5 build and replace that "Green PSU" on my Q9400 build with Super Flower SFX450W from my i5 build.

    But in the mean time before I buy that 600W PSU can my current PSU's handle those two above configurations?

    Thanks in advance!

    Best regards,
