    Well, it's a good brand with 5 yr warranty so... I would say yes, sure. The 270x will not ask much of it.

    It'll run a 270X without a problem. I'd push for a 280X or something though, coming from that 6870. Especially if you plan on keeping it awhile.

    This.

    Try to reach for a 280x, that would be an real upgrade.

    Should be ok. Or if you want to get something between the 270x and 280x power draw wise, look at 7950. I've seen them dirt cheap.

    Should be fine, but I reckon that i3 will be a big bottleneck.

    This is an excellent unit. Same one I have.

    Both your current PSU and the PSU TK recommended will run either a 270X or a 280X just fine.
