Is my PSU good enough to power the HD7870?

I am thinking about ordering the HD7870, but I was wondering if my PSU can power this card.

I have the OCZ ModXStream 700W and the rest of my specs are:

OS: Windows 7
CPU: Intel i5-2400 3.10 GHz
RAM: 8GB
Motherboard: PEGATRON 2AC2

    umm yes its a 700w. Its overkill. Recommended is 500w.
  2. Its a fair question.... some PSUs are crap, and couldn't even if rated 700W. But OCZs PSUs are generally ok. Surprising considering their horrible track record on everything else. But then they don't actually make them so that probably explains it.
