You should be fine with a quality 500W PSU like the corsair, seasonic or antec ones
You might want to take a look at the FX6300 or event he FX4300 since they offer more performance for less power and about the same price
Many people saying 7870 very good with overclock, so to give a good amount of power with OC i think you should get 550W or more to be safe. Be sure to buy high quality PSU. Never ever try to buy cheap PSU.
