give me 1 moment.  it only has 2 cables   so if 1  cable  feeds the 970  the one card tdp is 165 watts

and the other cable feeds 2x 1060     the combine tdp is 300 watts


you need to set msi afterburner  at  a 70%  power setting

which  would mean the 970 uses  .70 x  = 115,5 watts

and the 2 1060's  use .70 x 300 = 210 watts

It would barely pass for being safe  as 225 is the max  and it means the msi afterburner   needs to never f up.

What else is local?

can you find this?

it has 4 cables  and will work fine for you

I would get the EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2 220-G2-0850-XR 80+ GOLD 850W for $110 after rebate from Newegg:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817438018

It's a dual conversion, single 12V rail PSU. It has 4 PCI-E 8-pin slots, 4 6+2-pin PCI-E cables and two of the cables also have a 6-pin PCI-E splitter cable.
