In my current rig i am rocking a Thermaltake smart 700w PSU and currently am using it to power a 1050ti. Now for me its time to upgrade and I'm going to hopefully get enough money to buy a 3060ti when there's stock of course. Will my power supply be able to handle it and will it have the right connectors? Thanks in advance!

I'd like to say yes but that PSU is under the "Just don't plug a RTX 3000 on me". It's a low quality PSU.

I recommend a Tier A or B from this list.

Tier D • Recommended only for very cheap, iGPU systems
Thermaltake | Smart 80+ / SE / BM1 / BX1 (RGB) / DPS G Bronze X00W / 80+ RGB / M <=650W / SP-P (X30W/650W) / German series Bronze (Pro RGB) - TR2 Bronze / S X50W / 80+ White / RX 80+ White / RX Bronze <=750W - Toughpower PF1 (not ARGB) / DPS G Titanium 1500W - Litepower (RGB)

I would absolutely not protect a new GPU with an entry-level, group-regulated PSU. For a 3060 Ti, something in Tier A or Tier B at worst of our curated PSU list sticked in the Power Supplies forum would be far more appropriate.
