Since you might get another 7870 and that's a good 750w psu for only $75 get it.

Estimated 366w but you never want to skimp on the power supply. My opinion, you are good on the power supply but I myself always prefer modular psu's. Way easier and a lot less cluttered. As for yours you will have plenty with room for more heavy duty gear in the future.
