    Yes the 7xxx series do use less power than any Fermi gpu from nVidia (at the same or higher level)
  5. the 7870 uses less power than the 560ti but the upgrade is rather small, only about a 30% increase in performance for $300 is a bit much imo.
  6. maybe the radeon 7950 is a better option
  7. the 7870 and 560ti use the same amount of power, so yes
  8. If you OC, the 7950 is a great card and will give you a good boost in performance. You might also consider the 670 if its near the same price range.
