With a maximum power draw of 55W, I'm pretty sure it will!

I would say yes. 6570 has a TDP of 44W while 6670 has a TDP of 66W and is less powerful than the 7750.

7750 has been out for a few days that's why there isn't much talking about it yet. Like I told you it draws LESS power than a 6670 and is significantly faster.

Core i5 @ 3.0 GHz

No way, that i5 could handle a dual 7970 setup without bottlenecking at all. Of course you'd need a new PSU but that's another story ;)  My suggestion would be to either get :

- The 7750 for 110$ on the current 300W PSU.
or
- 6870 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... for 170$ and CX500 for 60$ http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... Total : 230$

It's your call ;)  The 7750 will give decent gaming performance but will have trouble with games like BF3 with cranked textures on resolutions of 1080p and higher.

EDIT : those are the .ca prices, they'll be even lower in the USA.

The 6570, 6670, and 7750 will all work on a 300W PSU no problem, I have done it numerous times.

HD 7750 is your fastest, most efficient option for a 300W power supply on a pre-built computer.
