Hi, basicly im new to SFF systems, but this amazing case has made me decide to get one, but i dont understand the PSU side of things

for a 1060 do i only need the HDPLEX 400w and the 330w dell laptop block?

and if i want a 2060 instead wold that still be good, or is there more options to consider?

cpu will be an i5, non-k sku

i have a 500W AC external brick, that can be used for a 2080Ti, 2080, 1080Ti, etc. if you're interested.

it includes a DC-DC unit also.

An HDPlex 400 and a Dell or HP 330W AC-DC brick would be enough for a GTX 1060 and i5 non-k series, and as long as the GPU you're installing is less than 215mm it should fit the Skyreach. If you can, I would strongly suggest getting the Skywire cables - especially for the 24-pin motherboard power cable - to make cable management easier.

Additionally, if you can get mini versions of the GPU then I would opt for them over the regular sized versions because that will allow you to have more room for other components.

Having some room behind the graphics card help a lot with cable routing as well.
For my 1060 6GB and Ryzen 1600 I use a 230W powerbrick from HP (we had some spares at work) and a HDPLEX 400W without any issues.
