I would suggest you to "upgrade" to the 6950 2GB version, because most of them can be unlocked to 6970 2GB and that is at least 80 bucks you saved using the unlock.
The DDR2 800MHz ram seems a bit out-dated, you might want to upgrade to DDR3-1333MHz, since they are ridiculously cheap... If there is a bottleneck, this would be it.
Then moving on to the 700W power supply... Don't you think it is a little abundant? Your system will not need more than 500W... Unless you wish to throw in another 6950 2GB for crossfire in the future.
Hyper 212+ I have one of those too, still kicking nice and quiet in my 1st gen i7 pc. They will work as long as you can find the "backplates" and "necessary" mounting screws it CAME with.
If your "old" mATX mobo doesn't support SATA3, you might need to change some settings in BIOS, I wish you wouldn't waste those nice kits on a mATX board...
