Is EVGA gtx1060 6gb SC suitable for upgrading an aw x51r2? It's got small dimensions and it draws power from a single 6pin...

Only Short versions of the card may physically fit.  And the power connections may be a VERY tight fit.

I believe that particular EVGA card will work, but I have not tried that specific card.

I am running a similar card; the Zotac GeForce GTX 1060 Mini. It fits nicely and connects with a single six pin. It does run warm compared to something like a FE 1060 running in a full size case that has airflow. I have not had any issues with the extra heat though. It usually hovers around 79 ~ 81C when playing Playerunknown's at nVidia's suggested settings. It will start throttling at 83C by default. You can OC it, but I don't due to the temps. In my, casual gamer, opinion  I get pleasant performance for 1080p gaming.
