Worried my power supply isn't enough...

(sorry if this isn't formatted properly, on mobile) here's the build I just bought https://pcpartpicker.com/user/myda17/saved/TGhbvK

in case you don't wanna click the link, est. power usage is 299w and the power supply is 450w

everything's here already except the gpu (ugh, this is gonna be the longest week ever)

this is my first build so I'm kind of nervous the wattage I chose is too low for the estimated power use

will it be ok?

You will use around 250W at the very most and likely around 200W while gaming. In theory (it can't do SLI) if you could do SLI with a GTX 1060 you would have enough wattage to do so. You have more than enough wattage.
