Will it run? Yes. Will it run at its maximum capacity on the slow 9600 and for very long on an unbranded 620 PSU? Extremely doubtful.

Depending on how old your psu is you might want to upgrade it before you drop in a pricey card like the 7870 in your rig.

If your psu fails it could take you new card with it.
