I can't see any issues that would stop you using that card, just as long as your case is large enough to accommodate it.

I would be concerned about two issues.

  1. The GTX1060 takes up two slots on the back panel, do you have the one next to the PCIe long slot available.

  2. The power supply that you have is only 450Watts, The stated minimum for some versions of this graphics card is 400Watts, personally I would want more of a safety margin than that. But it does depend on which version you buy.

And I agree with Archonar, it is 9.8 inches long according to Trusted Reviews. Will it fit in your case?
