Honestly , the max power that gtx 1060 can draw is120 watts as stock and more if it's a third party unit.

But, considering your other components it's pretty fine, but if you were to overclock and such, it's worthy of upgrading that power supply at-least to 600 or above for overclocking comfort.

Power usage will change when overclocking obviously, but i wouldn't know due to what or if your overclocking.

That PSU can apparently deliver the 500W it claims and I think the OEM is Delta. However as far as efficiency goes it doesn't go over 80%.

It has 3 12V rails each rated at 18 amps which makes them each capable of delivering 216W and I think one of them is for PCIE graphics cards with 6+2-pin connectors which can handle a 120W 1060.

However, it's a low quality unit and since your CPU is a power hungry component too, if you can, I'd suggest you upgrade to a good quality 500-550W unit. The PSU is the most important part of a PC and the performance and longevity of all other components depends on it so it's always a good investment to get a good unit.
