Could you mention your Power Supply Unit or PSU?
It's necessary for us to know that first.
Could you list your budget for the GPU too?
And which CPU do you have?

It seems like he has a 6-core Phenom II 1xxxT CPU. We still need to know your budget and your power supply unit. It would also be helpful if you mentioned whether your computer case is a full sized one, or a slim one.

230V is your input. Every electric device in your home uses same input. It's the output that's important.

200-300 USD is going to get you a good GPU, but not the best out there.

I would budget 50,000 rupee's if you want the best, Nvidia 690.

Or, spend around 20,000, and look into the 670, 7970, 7950 OC, or 680 reference.

Though, I don't cruise hardware sites for india, so I don't know if prices are more than UK/USA.

The 7850 is going to be better all the way around, AND use less power.

We still don't know if your power supply is good enough for the HD 7850.

You still haven't mentioned your PSU. The output, as sunius pointed out.

For 10-15k the best card you could get, would be an HD 7850.

If you can spend an extra, 1k, it's going to be well worth it.

That's an issues regarding the GPU's drivers. Download the latest ones from AMD's website.

So you didn't remove your NVIDIA drivrers first, before installing the HD 7850's drivers?

Use a tool called DriverSweeper to remove all the files of your previous drivers. Uninstall your current ones, via driversweeper, and then reinstall the latest ones.

This is a little tricky.
Try installing the drivers through safe mode.

1) Download Driver Sweeper here.
2) Download Catalyst 12.6 drivers HERE. but don't install.
3) Download CAP HERE.
4) Custom uninstall all AMD software through Control Panel, select everything and reboot.
5) Run Driver Sweeper and clean AMD AND nVidia drivers and reboot.
6) Re-install CCC and reboot.
7) Install the CAP profile and reboot.
8) Done and happy hunting! :)

You didn't overclock the card at all did you? I get that same driver crashing error when I put too high of a clock on my AMD GPU.

Oooh, sorry to hear you bought a CM; it is probably only good for 450W-500W: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Cooler-Master-eX... and it is also inefficient.
Fortunately, the HD7850 is pretty easy on the power, so you'll probably be ok, at least for a while. If you have the option, it would be safer to return the CM for a quality unit by Seasonic, Antec, Corsair, XFX, Enermax/LEPA, or FSP. Even OCZ would be a better choice. A quality modern PSU has full range active PFC (no little voltage switch but operates on a wide range such as 100V-240V) and some level of 80+ certification for efficiency.

Wow, you took a step in the wrong direction. You replaced a terrible PSU...for a terrible PSU.

You need to back up, and reinstall a fresh version of windows, how it isn't corrupt already I'm not sure. You had nvidia display drivers with catalyst? Oh my.

Fresh windows install, download catalyst 12.7 and don't look back.

How dirty is your case?
