  1. You don't really need more than the 500W you already have. Your CPU+mobo+HDD+RAM can at most need 200W (and i'm being very generous), while the GTX 1070 needs no more than 200W itself (again, being very generous). No matter the wattage of the PSU, your PC will consume the same watts, so your bill shouldn't change much (the efficiency of the PSU matters a little, though: a more efficient PSU will consume less; but the difference is minor). So i recommend not changing the PSU (unless its quality is sub-par, in which case buy a good PSU, but no need for more than 500W).

    Look, i don't know if the 500W model you indicated on top (500 watts hunt key) is any good, it's not even see it in the Tom's hardware forum list of PSUs (http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html), so considering the good (and expensive) hardware you're buying, you should definitely buy a good PSU. However, i don't think you need more than 500W (say 600W if that makes you feel better ;) ), 1000W is throwing the money, 850W is way overkill. Check the PSU list to select a good one, but don't pick the one with more wattage, that won't make it better.
