So Im going to build a pc. And I dont know if a 550w power supply will be enough for a a gtx 1060 3gb and a overclocked ryzen 5 1600x. Should I go for a 600w power supply?

Yes, by a good amount.

 

A 3GB 1060 isnt worth the money right now though. You can get an 8GB RX 580 for the same price

easily, an system builder might only use a 400 watt for a system like that. Not saying you should since the amount you save going less than 500 is not worth it IMO but you get the point.
