Need suggestions for new build

RE: Need suggestions for new build
7850 is meant to replace last gen 6950 which you can unlock to 6970 anyway. If you looked earlier in the articles it shows an i5 paired with a 6950. I think the i3 will bottleneck the 7850.

RE: Need suggestions for new build
I'll say this i'm a pretty heavy gamer and i use an i3 and a 6850. although the i3 may bottleneck the 7850 get it anyway and upgrade when you have too. another alternative is to get something in the range of a 6870 and an I5 2500.

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
