That PSU should be fine, and still be OK should you decide to overclock or add another HD 7870 in the future. Good luck on the build!

Actually HD 7870 Crossfire needs a recommended 600w power supply so while the OCZ would probably work you might be pushing it trying to run 2 of those cards. It is fine for a single card.
