I just installed a 1060 into my x51 r3, and it seems to be working fine. I also want to install a new processor since mine came with an i3, and it isn't very good at running vr. Would the power supple be able to support it?
specs: CPU: Intel core i3-6100
GPU: GTX 1060
storage: 8192 MB
power supply: 240, (i'm assuming from a google search)

Your unit seems to come with a 220w PSU brick the 1060 draws 120w recommended 400 on web site. if it was me and I wanted to upgrade cpu I would get the 330w brick from dell or maybe on Ebay just to be safe. the extra 110w would make a big difference.
