    Most PSUs today have efficiency of 80+, whereas, the efficiency of eXtreme Plus series is merely 70+. However, it should be enough for the HD5870.

    I would get a Corsair HX650 or HX750 if were you.
  2. Yours is not a very reliable PSU.
    If it is old then change it.

    But it will take the load of HD5850.
