750w is pushing it, you should be fine with a good brand like ocz, but i would go for at least 850w or so.

that is a great psu read some reviews here:

Well here you check the SLI certified PSUS list:

And since your psu can handle a 570 SLI

570 consumes ~219 W
6970 consumes ~207W

so yes it will probably handle it safelly, i just don't recommend overclocking any components, run them with default clocks but even overclocking it should handle perfectly since it is certified.
