Yes that PSU will run 6870 Crossfire if you decide to upgrade later.

Even with Xfire, the PSU gives you a good 50W extra (worst case).

For a system using a single Radeon HD 6870 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and have at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

The Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 (CMPSU-650TXV2), with its +12 Volt continuous current rating of 53 Amps and two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is sufficient to power your system configuration. There is ample reserve capacity to handle any overclocking of the CPU and GPU you may want to perform.
