I am considering trading one of my friends a kindle fire for a XFX ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, would a 6970 be a significant upgrade over a EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SE?

Rest of the system

Phenom II X6 1055T 2.8GHz

8GB DDR3-1333

1TB HDD

600W Cooler Master Power Supply (I have a 850W Antec PSU I was planning on installing soon anyway if a 600W PSU doesn't get er done.)

Also does anyone know what a reasonable overclock of Phenom II X6 1055T with stock cooling would be?

yes, with a 6970 2GB, you would be able to run just about all the modern games maxed on a 1080p monitor... your CPu should be able to overclock to 3.5 mhz easily...temperatures will largely depend on your case and airflow... though a cooler master 212 will only cost you $20... cheap upgrade if you need it

If everything is in working order seems like a good deal.

Here's some charts with an overclocked 7850 that include a 6970, I'm guessing the 460 SE would probably be around the 7770.
