'slight' OC should be fine but pretty easy to put the unit at edge. Let unit run at full load isn't a good idea.

Yea you should be fine. While the 6970 is rated for 250W or whatever, it draws at lot less under games (powertune) while performance is fine. It should be fine though, this is the total power consumption of the system under Metro, which is one of the most stressful games. And that power supply you have is really good, you should be fine.
