PSU and GPU upgrade help

I am upgrading my dell xps 8300 with a radeon HD sapphire 7870 and apevia JAVA 650w. I was wondering if these 2 upgrades would fit in my 8300 case and if they'd be able to run Rome II and BF4 on very high or max settings. I have 8gb RAM and an i5-2320 to go along with these 2 upgrades

  1. Do not buy a cheap psu.
    Apevia is a tier 5 (not recommended, replace asap) unit on this list:

    A 7870 needs only a decent 500w psu.
  2. I have moved to a Corsair GS600. Is this better? And will the sapphire radeon HD 7870 GHz OC fit and the GS600 fit in my xps 8300 case???

    Much better psu.
    Your case looks to be a normal sized tower, so I would expect no problem.
    This link shows what seems to be some full sized cards installed:
