GPU Upgrade for I7-960 X58 mobo

I'am currently running a XFX Black Ed.6850 GPU on a Sabertooth X58 motherboard with a XFX 850 Black Ed. 80+silver PSU , CPU I7-960@ 3.8.
My question is, can I use a R9 290x or a GTX 780i in this older rig and will I need to o.c. to stay away from bottlenecks from the cpu?
