I'm not sure how a more powerful graphics card can burn out a CPU.

What wattage is your power supply?

The worst that's going to happen if you have a good enough power supply is that the CPU is just going to bottleneck the graphics card and nothing else.

I have a EVGA GTX 1070 FTW ACX 3.0 and it's pretty good, well any 1070 variant with at least two fans is good. Any decent 500W-650W power supply is plenty for that graphics card.

And I see they have already answered your question well.
