I am building a new pc with an i3 8350k and gtx 1060 6gb. For me to overclock both of those and the memory what size power supply would I need?

Even a 550w PSU would be more than enough, so I'd worry more about getting a good PSU.

Excellent unit and good value: Seasonic Focus Plus Gold

Decent value budget unit right now if you include rebate: Corsair TXM

Budget units: Look at the Corsair white label CXMs or 2017 CX series (don't get the older green label ones!). These sometimes go on sale/rebate for under $40.

I ended up buying the Season Focus Plus Gold just to be on these safe side with wattage and have very good quality.

It's an excellent unit and should last you a long time. :)

Good luck with your build!
