but you havent mentioned what brand of psu you have !! 550 watts of a quality brand psu such as xfx or corsair is more than enough for a single 7870.
but if you dont have a quality psu i would suggest first upgrade your psu to something like corsair cx 500 or xfx 550 watt before trying to install the 7870

With that brand you are just fine. As long as the GPU is connected right you won't have a problem with it.
