Yes, the Neo Eco 520 is excellent. Nice price too. If I remember correctly that's the same as Seasonic S12II.

Feel free to get the Neo Eco 520, for $40 it's a great deal, but the 400W version I suggested would do fine with room to spare. The 6870 is a 150W card (max), so that 400W unit would be more than enough. Anything beyond ~500W for this system would be silly.
