I do not plan on crossfiring anything here, I was wondering if i upgraded my PSU to atleast a 600w, would I be able to run with an XFX 7870 radeon hd card. I want to uprgrade my GPU and I am not concerned with dual graphics. I have an AMD A6-3650 APU Would this be possible? the 7870 looks great and I would love to run it.

I don't see why not, will get slightly bottlenecked by the cpu unless you overclock, but it should run for sure. Get a Corsair / Seasonic / Enermax psu within 550-600w.

Be sure to have something other than the stock CPU fan because the APU will get hot with certain games when all the cores are busy.
