power wise yes. perfectly fine - 1070 is power efficient with 150w through power connectors. 

 

would I recommend it with EVGA 430? No, not particularly. It can hold for a couple weeks but I'd be afraid of it overloading or something.

430w is not intended to work with high end hardware, Although the GPU only outputs 150w. It's still a lot and the PSU isn't meant to handle those types of load. The EVGA 430w is more for HTPCs or low end gaming PCs. Not for something like a 1070/1080.

based on the power draw of my 1080ti I would say it probably would supply enough power when new but PSU's lose efficiency over time and it might not do it then, get a better PSU, it make no sense to stick with a crap PSU and drop to a cheaper video card, a better PSU will NEVER hurt anything, but a crappier GPU will rob you of FPS

Well if the graphic card powered by pcie slot which is around 35w to 75w depending on motherboard and graphic card. Sure i have antec 850m hcg powering my pc which is e5450 e0 8gb ram asus p5q premium motherboard gtx 660 2gb 3 hard drives 1 dvd drive with led strips and 6 fans that will kill the evga 430 watt power supply in a few months maybe weeks. Better go hgher wattage in power supplies or ya risk blowing up the power supply in cases i seen and heard killed the whole computer entirely.

depends on what else is in the rig. It's close, but should be fine for most lower TDP CPU's

there is a list around here somewhere of top tier PSU's, my personal choice was the Corsair RM750x, I like it because it has a zero fan mode till you reach like 350ish watts of draw which basically means the fan rarely ever runs even with a full gaming load with my 6700k/1080ti PC, being a 1070 you could get away with the RM650x to save a few bucks, but you might get more fan spinning and depending where you are you probably can get the RM750x in your budget, I paid around 100 USD for mine here in the USA.
