  1. I have Sapphire HD6870and intel i5 2500k and i have no problems at all, in fact I am very pleased with my GPU, i don't have overclocked the CPU nor the GPU and i play Crysis 2 on max quality on 1920x1080 resolution, Assassin's creed:Revelation same settings. Highest temperature after hours of playing 70 C with a stock GPU, CPU, and HAF912 cooling.
  2. Yes contrary to popular myth there are no problems with Intel® processors and AMD/ATI video cards. So go with whatever video card you would like to use.
