Can I upgrade my video card to ATI 6970 with my current 500W powersupply. Please advice me.

I don't really want you to do that. Huntkey power supplies is not good in any terms. I would recommend getting a new power supply from brands like Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, etc. I also would not buy a 6970. Yes, I know it's a good performing card, but it is pretty outdated. You could get a 7870 which is about $250 and it blows the 6970 out. It also use less power, but I would still change the PSU.
