Yes, you should have at least a dozen more fans.

Your psu is more than sufficient

Not to worry, you are good.

The primary driver for psu power is the graphics card/s. The other parts for a normal complement of fans, dvd, hard drives, and overclocking are relatively insignificant. For a typical pc, like yours, with a 6870, amd suggests only a 500w psu:
