Putting a 7870 with an amd APU is going to bottleneck your graphics card. The APU's do not have good processor preformance compared to a real CPU. If going socket AM3 go pile driver ie 6350 or 8350

AMD is good, but get a FX6350 i.e. instead, and a compatible mobo offcourse. You'll get better performance. The psu is enough but if you're planning on going crossfire you might want to get a bit higher instead.

500w is plenty for that set up, if you get that corsair at least.
