:welcome:    stefosau79,

 

All looks ok, same speed and voltage unbuffered RAM and your 650W Corsair PSU can more than cope with the ASUS GTX1060 DUAL-GTX1060-O3G which requires a 400W PSU & 27 amps on the +12V rail.

 

JAFYI: Even the budget range VS650 PSU that Corsair once produced put out 600W and 50 amps on the + 12V rail, see PSU database here

You are most welcome stefosau79  :)

 

Do you need any help with the upgrades at all, safety precautions you need to take, old driver uninstall and installation of drivers for the new card etc.
