thermaltake tends to make bad psus. since you didn't give a model I'd suggest you check some reviews. the power draw will be well below what its rated though so shouldn't be an issue. it may even be a good one.

As for 6 monitors you didn't give a resolution or use. yes a 7970 CAN run 6monitors. whether the quality will be good enough depends. most people doing that for gaming run crossfire. Also you have to use display port monitors or 4 adapters which are around 30 bucks each for 1920 x 1200 monitors, and 100 a piece for higher resolutions

yes. it will increase some frame rates in games and one 7970 doesnt quite have enough power to run all monitors

Still it should be fine. I would consider getting three monitors and using them in portrait mode. that always seems to be the better setup to me. no bezel in the middle. the guys who do that are usually using 30 inch high Res displays that cost a grand or two each but I am sure someone could recommend some 1080p ones that would work and much cheaper
