Good that you are up grading your PSU up to a 500w. Just make sure that you get a good one, like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, and XFX brands. I don't think you can go any higher on the GPU with out bottle necking it.

You posted everything ok and I might say you have very good english. I can say I can't speak your language at all. High five to you for knowing more than one language.

Well prices in india may differ to prices from newegg, to OP see if you can get 6750 or 6770, it'll be a better choice for you instead of 6670. If you are upgrading to a 500W make sure you buy a good branded PSU, like DM186 says.

Thank you all for your replies.
From your suggestions , Another doubt has come to me : DDR3 or DDR5?
Because i can afford a 6750 DDR3 but definitely cant afford the DDR5.
The 6670 GDDR5 costs Rs.6200 (nearly 124$) but the DDR3 costs only Rs.5200 (nearly 105 $)
The 6750 , on the other hand , DDR3 costs 5700 (nearly 114$) while the DDR5 costs 6200 (nearly 124$).
By the above statistics i can say that i would definitely purchase a 6750 but which one GDDR5 or DDR3 ?
And once again thank you for your replies

Edit :- PSU prices
Any 500w unit costs me Rs 3000 (60$)
That takes my Final budget to a huge sum of Rs 10000 (200$)
That was like 80$ more than my initial budget .
Any suggestions?
