With your setup, that Hiper should be just fine. If you're looking to upgrade, you can look at the Corsair 650TX, 620HX (modular), or 750TX.

Infact, the adapters that come with the Sapphire HD 4870 only require one molex connector to power them, strangely:

Would this power supply (obviously using the splitter to make a molex into a 6-pin) be alright for the 4870?

Thanks
I wouldn't myself since you have 30amps and only 1 6-pin pcie
Type-R HPU-4B580 ~30A
Type-R HPU-4K580 ~30A

"In my view the Radeon HD 4870 series requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit at minimum if you use it in a high-end system, and I think that's barely on the safe side. Also recommended is 32 AMP's on the 12 volts rails for stable power distribution (in a single card configuration). Please make note of the fact that the card uses two 6-pin power connectors."
