Hey guys i am currently planing to buy new gpu for future gaming on 144hz monitor and playing on low/medium setting on full hd to get all those frames.

Currently have:

i5 6600k 4.4ghz @ 1.2V with Cooler master Hyper TX3i
ASUS R9 270 Direct CU II OC 2 GB
G.SKILL RAM 16GB, DDR4, (2x8GB), 2133MHz
Gigabyte GA-Z170-D3H

I wanna know if i will be good for couple months(4-5) with Chieftec CTG-500-80P PSU?

Gpu i am planing to upgrade is GIGABYTE GTX 1060 WindForce 2X OC (6-pin connector)

What i see is my r9 270 is drawing more TDP than gtx 1060 so i think i will be fine for 4-5 months.

So guys will i be fine with that psu :D

Depends on what you mean by good. Any PSU has a chance of failure or surviving, so we can't determine that. The 1069 = 270 in terms of power. But I'd rather have my new GPU on a better PSU because a better one can ensure its lifespan stays long.

I mean just not overclocking GPU and not playing games for more than 3 hours straight.
As i see on internet my r9 270 draws more tdp than gtx 1060 - r9 270 150W -- gtx 1060 120W

But now that graphic card is on very good price in my country and its very good upgrade for mine r9 270 so i wanna grab that gtx1060.

No R9 270 is about 120W just like the 1060. Aftermarket cards can vary based on the design and clock rates but the normal R9 270 is 120W as recorded in the Tomshardware review of the card.

The Gigabyte 1060 is probably more like 135W due to being an aftermarket cars. Point be, power is about the same for both and any difference is negligible.

So will i be fine with gtx 1060? I will not overclock it and not do anything just play games.

With my r9 270 i never had any problems. Its little bit overclocked and no problems. No bluescreen not anything :)

I'd recommend against people using outervision or any calculators for that matter - they are overestimation machines and not accurate to real-world scenarios as well as actual power requirements and fail to understand the differences in peak and average power.
