6870 is a stronger video card at not a much more substantial price.
I have that same hard drive, I don't have a problem with it. Sure it doesn't match the speeds of an SSD, (no HDD can) but you won't have any trouble with its speed. Actually, my secondary Seagate 2TB drive thats SATA II doesn't seem any slower than my SATA III Caviar Blue. go figure.
