so far the gtx260 is handling physx fine,i have a spare gtx480 as well that i used to use,i dont see any difference between the 2,reason why i stuck with the 260 as i physic's card.
keeping the 480 just incase anything goes wrong with the 7970 than at least i have a backup,

As far as I know as long as you're able to keep it under 70 Degrees you should be able to keep it stable, if you wanna OC it further simply get an aftermarket cooler.

I can't stabilize past 1125Mhz on the GPU. Any suggestions?

I can get to 1600Mhz or more on the Memory easily. Doesn't improve performance though.

Go into afterburner.cfg and change the value "unofficialAtioverclocking" from 0 to 1. Restart.

In settings, unlock voltage control.

Sorry very late reply Ghamster :)
Yes in 2 latest Afterburner we cannot unlock AB because AB doesn't include important file to unlock which is "atipdlxx.dll" and "atipdl64.dll". You need to download it and copy to C:\Windows\SysWOW64 (\If you use 64bit OS) or C:\windows\System32 (If you use 32bit OS).
Btw this is link from mediafire --> Download atiocdll
