But 7850 is more efficient and has low TDP then 6950, also very future proof from what I have read.
Its nearly same price as 6950 in India, hence a better choice.
It should be available in India in a few weeks (atmost 1 month), but I can use the iGPU till then.

ricky07652, as Poppy-seede suggested, I can replace the CPU in future which will be much cheaper then replacing both CPU + GPU.
The GPU will be future proof for atleast 2 yrs with a CPU upgrade in future.

What are others people's thoughts?
Which GPU brand's cooling is best for overclocking the 7850?
From what I have gathered, HIS IceQ & MSI Twin Frozr will be the best options, So which to one do I get?
Any more suggestions or should I go ahead with this build?

Thanks everyone for your help
