It should work, but i'd upgrade the PSU for peace of mind, i think you will run into problems later on

The PSU should be decent enough not to take any components with it when it pops
But it is poor quality, and the 1070 will tax it quite a bit
If you start getting brownouts on your pc, it's for sure time to upgrade that PSU

TLDR

Yes, but not recommended for long time usage

The Smart series power supplies are junk. If you want a dependable gaming system get a good power supply. everything in the computer depends on it. Also, 2400mhz. is pretty low memory speed for Ryzen 3600 and will lower performance. You should be using 3200mhz. or 3600.
