NO DON'T LOOK at how many Watts. LOOK AT THE BRAND.
A Corsair 400W may be better than a Mercury 700W.
Yes, The 5870 would be an overkill. overkill meaning its a waste of you're money as you can get other cards and experience just the same with your system. not over kill meaning you will kill your system. But if you really want a 5870, Branded PSU first.
THE Power Supply is the most important Component for any Computer.
Bad PSU = Damaged Hardware
PSU Not Enough = Damaged Hardware/No Power
NO PSU = No Power
