Yes it will be able to run it. Just bare in mind that HD6870 needs two power connectors from the PSU.

okay, since you do not mention your corsair series, i'll guess it's a corsair vs450..

Quick and dirty analysis about this unit..

____________________________________________________

1. corsair vs450 has short cables (24pin & 8pin are only 45cm)..it will be trouble some if you use huge case..230v only

2. corsair vs450 is using, well.., not a very decent caps (JunFu on the primary & secondary is a mix of JunFu & SamXon).

3. corsair vs450 based on CWT's GPA platform..
well, not a great design, the GPA is half a step away from trash. you can say this is cheapest unit you could reasonably put in your PC with no fear of exploding.. :D 

_________________________________________________________

well, I wouldn't pay money for such a unit, and I don't get why brands such as Corsair bring such crap to market.

Even cx430v2 version much better than this unit, 4-6% efficiency gains, longer cables, & better caps (all SamXon is better than a mix with JunFu.)

Lastly, well, anyhow..you'll overclock your processor..:) ..since it is k version..
Get slighty bigger psu for safety..

_________________________________________________________

Conclusion:

Get another psu..:) 

Get Seasonic S12II Bronze 520 W or at least Corsair CX500v2..

It has been answered that it will run on that PSU but bare in mind that the HD6870 needs two power connectors and since I do not have access to info on that vs450 I do not know if it has 1 or 2. The CX500 does have 2.
Total system load barely goes over 300watts http://www.anandtech.com/show/3987/amds-radeon-6870-685...

Yes 4pin Molex to either 6 or 8pin PCIe power is readily available.
