Will the GTX-1060 work with the stock PSU in the Dell-XPS 8900?

I am looking to upgrade to the EVGA GTX 1060 (non reference) in my Dell XPS 8900. There seems to be quite controversy over wether or not the PSU can be trusted to suplly the amount of power needed for higher end cards. On Dell's website it is stated that the PSU supports up to a GTX 980 but I don't know, based on my research, if I should trust my card with the power supply.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

So...according to Dell, the XPS 8600 comes with a 460w power supply that will power video up to 225w. The GTX 1060 uses 120w, so you should be fine unless you are running a whole bunch of fans and lights. The PSU supports up to a GTX 980, but the GTX 980 pulls more watts (150w) than the GTX 1060 (120w). I think you will be good.
