So I'm building a computer for the first time, and I'm getting ready to order the parts as soon as the GTX 1060 is available to be bought. The estimated wattage for my build is 212W, but 332W including the GTX 1060 (According to nvidia's website, the 1060 uses 120W). The psu I have in my list right now is a Rosewill 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX. Should I increase my wattage, decrease, or what? The funny thing is, I found the exact same psu just for 10$ less with 100 more wattage. Should I get that? Also, what would be the effects if my power supply is bigger than it needs to be?

P.S. Feel free to suggest any changes I should make to my PC (I'm trying to stay pretty cheap, while having a good computer)
