Yes it will handle it with no problem. The 5850 consumes more power than the 7870.

You should be okay with that psu. Can I ask why the upgrade?

7870, It's nearly as fast as the 7950 and it can overclock like a champ.

HD 7870 performs 10% better. GTX 660 has Adaptive VSync, TXAA and PhysX. It's up to you what's more important to you :) .
