Your CF 7870 cards will need about 600w.
From that point of view, you are ok.
But, the CX corsair series are only tier 3 on this list. Not bad, but not the best either.

I might look at something in tier 2

That would be much better.
XFX is made by Seasonic.
I like to overprovision a bit; the psu will consume only the wattage that is demanded of it.
