PSU:corsair TX750W
GPU:Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6850 2 GB , Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6870 1 GB or Sapphire AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6790 1 GB
HEAT SINK:Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Cooler

PSU & Heatsink are good. Go for it.

For the GPU, you do not need 2GB on the HD6850. So if the price is the same with the 1GB 6870, then get the 6870 for better performance.

If you can afford it, stick to the 6870 1GB. This will give your best performance among your choices.

By the way, are you sure there is the Corsair TX750 PSU? I can not find it. I know about HX750. But in any case, a Corsair TX650 will do good for you.

Here, India the price of 6870 1GB is costlier than the other two.. well i have to decide about that... and yes am sure about Corsair TX750 PSU.. here is the link: http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-cmpsu-750txv2uk-750-wat...

I see. Anyway, a TX650 is sufficient for you even if you plan on going CF.

If you go TX 650, you can realize an Rs 1343 saving which you can use to get the 6870 1GB instead of the 6850.

Yes. I used to power an unlocked AMD Phenom II X3 720BE @3.6Ghz, 2x6950 2GB & 4x500GB WD Caviar Black in a Corsair HX620. Corsair are a good PSU bunch. So don't worry. Your PC will get more benefit from a 6870+TX650 vs 6850+Tx750W combo.

Even AMD itself recommends only 600W PSU for 2 x 6870:

Sorry, I rushed through and didn't read where you wanted to crossfire instead of sli down the road.
