Yes, it will do fine, it has dual 12v rail with 22A each will draw about ~400w, that card will only draw maximum ~125w.
Even with a couple of hdds and fans will be fine.

You have more than enough power. Depending on the rest of your system, you could questionably run two of them with that PSU.

Inded, even for 7850 crossfire it will do, unless he has 6 hdd drives 7200 rpm, amd cpu with 125w with an aftermarket cooler and couple of fans on the case.
