No it's not , because quality and reliability is lacking.

Look for a quality PSU to run that card: 550w-650w is a good place in terms of power: Seasonic Focus , Corsair RMx , EVGA G2 or G3, FSP Hydro G ,Corsair CX or CXM 550W-650W if your on a budget. Also Corsair Vengeance PSU's are decent.

Possibly, but it's not a great PSU.
Gigabyte's units are CWT or Andyson units, and not great to begin with.

Supposedly 38A on the 12V rail. So 456W.

I wouldn't be confident in that unit and, for the money, there's certainly better options.
That unit is ~$69 in the US, $65 in Austalia - and those are the only two regions I can find it for sale.

Given that's more than a CX550(M) or, in some cases a TX650M both from Corsair - I don't see any reason to even attempt to run a 2070 on it.
