XPS 8700 GPU Upgrade

Hello, I have a question consisting on upgrading my graphics card in my Dell XPS 8700. Currently My Dell XPS 8700, has a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745, and I was wondering if it was capable on upgrading to a  GTX 1060-3GB. And if so, do I need to change anything else like, the power supply? I'll list my computer specs below if that helps.
