Also, I know this may be the wrong section but will the power supply be enough for this card?

Not sure, but I did notice that you weren't buying both your processor and motherboard from Microcenter. I think you will save some money (25ish) if you buy em' both from there.

This rig is complete. I bought everything except the graphics card and now i'm worried that a 7870 will not fit.

While the card looks long in the picture, XFX's specs state that the card is only 9.5" long.
If that is correct the case should allow that. And the 2 PCIe power cables connect on top rather than the end. So that won't add to the length. Your case's drive cage should not obstruct the card.
