Why Newegg?It doesnt ship to India . Prices in Newegg is cheaper than the prices of Computer Hardware in India.
Cost Of Sapphire Radeon 6850 in new egg = 165$ which = Rs 8000 but the price in India is 10500 which is equal to 200$ approx

Intel Core i5 2500K Sandy Bridge @ Rs 11400
Asus P8P67 Pro @ Rs 12800
G-Skill 4 GB DDR3 1600Mhz Sandy Bridge RAM @ Rs 3250
Western Digital Caviar Blue @ Rs 1700
Corsair 750TX 80+ Certified Power Supply @ Rs 6750
Cooler Master HAF 922 Mid Tower Case @ Rs 6500
Sapphire HD 6950 2GB*2 CROSSFIRE @ Rs 30000
Cooler Master Hyper 212+ @ Rs 1900

Total Rs 74000 ie about 1500$

Yes 4 GB is more than enough for Gaming
Yes you can go for Seagate 1 TB @ Rs 2700
If u Find 4 GB insufficient u can get 8 GB for 5500 Rupees
Everything will be compatible
