Any reason why you don't want to build it yourself? You can get a much better system for your money.
I feel like that is a generic psu. That means it is low quality and I would highly recommend against it. A low quality psu has a higher chance to blow up on you.

Do you need a monitor/os/keyboard/mouse?
Are you overclocking?

I can stir up a system for you after you answer those questions.

-Overclockable if you add a future aftermarket cpu cooler.
-7870 is stronger than the 660

I mean, this build isn't tons stronger but you get a better quality motherboard, case, psu.
