The 7870 has a minimum of 500W, with 650W recommended. Don't have any knowledge of Antec, but maybe someone else has an opinion on that.

The Antec EA-xxx Green series is made by Delta Electronics. They've been around for over 40 years so it should be fine. The 7870XT draws under 200w, so figure in another 200w for CPU and other components and you still have room to spare.
