Not really. To many people forget about the PSU and buy cheap ones that are unreliable and under powered. Maybe for this system it is a bit overkill however it should last a long time, possibly more than 10 years(maybe), and it should be sufficient to power any more power hungry cpu's and gpu's that will need to be installed later on as the 1060 won't be very useful for later titles unless you want console performance, especially the 3gb variant. And tbh the price on the PSU is pretty good for the quality of it.

Its also important to realize that the overall price of PSU's have gone up in recent years, largely due to having more power and quality control but also because the cost of manufacturing has gone up as well. You could get a reliable 500w for under $50 a few years back, now unless your buying used or buying OEM its nearly impossible.

Everything has gone up in price due to advancements is gaming and basically anything else software related. PSU's are going up to support the power demands of these more powerful components. And inflation is a reason as well. I wouldn't have thought manufacturing cost would have gone up but that does explain why parts the haven't had recent breakthroughs still cost more than what they initially did.

It depends if it is modular, the efficiency rating and other things. Yeah that price for a non rated psu is normal, on sale especially.

I know my cable management is terrible, and to fix it I will need to rewire everything which I don't want to do. And the corsair case is actual cancer to work in. The dell optiplex pc's that I repair have better cable management options than that case. And please submit a build showing your skills so we can get proof you know what you are talking about, otherwise we (or at least I) will not take you seriously and view your opinion as a joke and not worth considering.
