Hope it is of decent quality and not some 20 piece of junk. To give you an idea as to why to avoid cheap no-names,

They also have a very bad habit when they die to take out other things as well. Can make it very expensive having to replace the motherboard (and/or ram, video card, etc), all from saving a few quid on the power supply.

Bit of a long read but well worth it before buying a power supply,

Nice power supply, and more than enough for the 4870 and the rest of your system.

I know that, but I heard OCZ power supplies last along time & are reliable, so I thought I might aswell buy a 600W power supply, just incase I want to buy another graphics card in the future & it demands at least 600W or something :)
