It will work on your psu and you can OC that card without problem, 7850/7870/270/270X are one of the best overclockers
About that insight -you can look on your store prices for gtx750ti or R9 270X/270 or HD7870 and get card with best price if you want to go higher and you find card which is only some 20 euro more expensive from this list -get it -gtx760 or R9 285/280/280X or HD7970

I would rather upgrade to a fx-6300. Cause its gonna blow the apu away when going with a dedicated graphics card. I believe that your gonna get a slight bottleneck with a fx-6300 and a r9 270 but that can be avoided with a slight overclock.

If you have the money go for the fx-8320 its the same as the 8350 but just a a little bit lower clock speed. And if you dont have a low budget get the i5 4690k its 50-60$ more than the 8320 but its better + it have a lower power consumption

I should tell you that your cpu will bottleneck thic GPU and so one, but your PC is way better than mine and mine can handle this GPU easily. Not even Crysis 3 on ultra (AA of) get my CPU on 100%, so no problem for me ;-)
