    As long as you don't do any overclocking and you have a good brand of PSU you should be alright. What PSU do you have?

    It could be potentially dangerous if your PSU were to fail, it's really up to you.

  5. I think you would be fine but I would try to avoid long hours of high load. Check out this 7850 http://amzn.to/14LXrV1 it's a great deal right now.

    If you've been running a 4870 you shouldn't have any issues, Antec makes pretty nice PSU's, you'll be fine.

    Yea, running your GPU at full load being 80-90% or more for hours at a time. You'd probably be fine doing so but you may want to take breaks. Download MSI Afterburner to monitor your GPU and you're welcome for the link. =)
