Thanks in advence
 
The minimum recommended PSU for the GTX 1060 is 400 Watts, as stated by Nvidia. Though, for some extra headroom, and future proofing, you can also get any high quality 500/550 Watts PSU.

What's your budget for the PSU ? And, in which currency will you pay ?

Ideally, any new power supply should have 2x6+2. Most 1060 models use a single 6-pin, but some variants MIGHT have an 8-pin.

I can't say I've ever heard of that brand, and that makes me hesitant.

When I go to the specifications page, it lists 1A of power for every single rail. That has to be incorrect, but, that the information isn't listed makes me think that something's wrong, or that the PSU is not worth getting.

Low quality PSUs can fail, and, sometimes, they take out other components with them. The PSU is one where you want a solid unit that is well known to be high quality.
