    I dont see the +12v amps on rails, so I can not calculate the power.
    It probably handle it since the HD7870 has a MAX TDP of 175W, but adding total consumption you will be a little tigh, so I recommend a good branded certified 600W PSU (Corsair,Antec,XFX,most of them using SEASONIC topologies)
