Hi zhackas!

I would strongly suggest you get a power supply by SeaSonic, Antec, XFX, or Corsair. A ~500W model should be fine. Check out these power supply tips for more information.

Good luck!

The 7870 is good enough for the gaming side of the question.

I agree with scragnoff, go for at least a 500W power supply from a more reputable company like the ones mentioned. Nothing worse than a cheap power supply ruining all your components.

Fx6300 can be clocked to the performance of the fx8350 in games. Overall difference of fx6300 and fx8350 are pretty similar, look some benchmarks.

Good Cpu-cooler included.

Sapphire is better then the diamond version of the hd7870,
Its cooler,silent,cheaper, looks better :) .

High quality power supply

Memory 2x4gb 1866mhz instead of 1333mhz. Also cheaper.

If you are looking to spend the same amount of the GPU, this one is much better:
PowerColor AX7870 2GBD5-2DHPPV3E

It's based off the 7950/7970 Tahiti board and is more powerful than a standard 7870.

Yes
But i would go with the saphire hd 7870 oc for 190$
The power color hd 7870 tahiti le is 40$ more , louder, hotter, and only few fps faster then the sapphire 7870 oc in stock.

Sapphire hd 7870 oc can be overclocked to the level of the hd7870 tahiti LE

The 7870 XT(or 7870 LE) is a crippled version of the same Tahiti GPU that is used in the higher tier cards like the 7950/7970. It has more shaders and texture units than a regular 7870, that is based on the midtier Pitcairn GPU that is used with 7870's and 7850's.

For the money, it is a much better value than a regular 7870.

All in all, that will get you to high but want to swap cards to get to Ultra. I recommend stepping up to the 7950/7970 or a 660/660ti because BF4 is just around the corner and it looks like they're trying to add a lot of background effects that might need a little extra muscle. If you're sure you will never want to add a second card, then the power rating on your PSU is fine. I personally always leave plenty for a 2nd card so that I don't have to replace it down the road.

I have an 8150 and an Nvidia 560 and they're running it very stable on High w/o AA/motionblur @ 1080p without overclocking either my proc or card.

it would be no problem, but replacing the fx6300 for a fx8350 won't give you much more performance in games.
i would save the money for the upcoming amd steamroller-series,well if it brings a good performance boost...
