Psu should be enough. Motherboard is compatible as long as it has a pciex16 slot.

Also make sure that your PSU has a PCIE 6 pin and 8 pin power adapater. This card requires both. I am running my 4870x2 on a 610 watt PSU so you are fine there.

Most brands package a molex to 6pin pcie converter with 4870x2. Some companies, like Gigabyte, include both molex to 6pin and 8pin converters.
