  1. Yes it will, you shouldnt really have any issues as long as your PSU is still in good condition, 550w is easily enough for this.
  2. Which exact 550w antec psu? Does it have enough amperages for the 6970? Looks like the 6970 can draw up to ~400w.
  3. No, I don't think so.

    It's the Antec Truepower 550w semi modular one.

    this may or may not be related but I had to clock my gpu down to 850mhz to fix display driver crashes.

    but other than that everything run perfect atm

    btw currently I have :
    p7H55D-M PRO motherboard
    i3 540 cpu
    4GB ram
  5. I would upgrade your power supply to at least 650w.

    if the tpn 550 can handle that i see no problem with any single card on the market today on the tpn 550
  7. ^+1 yep you'll be fine Antec TP series is good stuff!
