No worries at all. You're perfectly fine with anything under the 90s.

Now another question for you good sir!

Would it be worth purchasing a 7870 and overclocking it? Would that be a good upgrade over the 6970?

Well the HD 7870 is faster than the 6970 but not by that much, nearly as much as the GTX 580, runs cooler & quieter whilst consuming less power. Check the benchmark between the two here.

Can you stretch your budget to the 7950?

Is the 7950 worth it? Can it be overclocked to 7970 settings just as the 6950 could be OC'd to 6970?
