Just get the card replaced rest everything is gud...
The PSU you have is not high quality and likely doesn't make 600w. Coolermaster PSUs are generally junk. That said, if it ran your 6850 the 7950 should be alright. I would replace it with a better unit though. Corsair, Antec, XFX, Seasonic make good units.
Your CPU is a bit old. It shouldn't bottleneck the GPU, but it will be a weaker spot in highly intensive games. That said, it should be fine still.
