The PSU will be fine if you intend to keep a single GPU setup.

As far as playing FC3 with those boards, take a look at some benches from Techspot.com (Page 1: Setup, Page 2: Benches with high quality settings). You can decide if the 6870 is worth it for the free game.

the 6870 is worth the extra. farcry3 is a very demanding game,. make sure you have a capable cpu too.

most 6870s are only 1GB. You can get a 1GB 7850 for $150 after rebate, which is about what a 6870 costs.
