As stated, that PSU will handle two 7870's and a CPU overclock +peripherals just fine. (Peripherals like Hard drives, USB etc use a minute amount of power by comparison.

Newegg reviews should be taken with a grain of salt and always a serious questionably over the users competence when making comments.

Enjoy your second card.

My mind set today is different from my first build as I see the PSU as a key core component.
Same here, I built my first box in 1994 and all I was concerned about with the psu is if it turned on or not. I have recently modified a few psu's to act as a 5 volt power supply for a group of usb hubs. Great learning experience, like some psu'd are really two separate power supplies, one low current 5v supply and the high current 5 & 12v as the second.
