Yes... one of my friends had also ordered this sapphire 7950 OC from flipkart and they cancelled the order. Apparently it seems either they ran out of stock really or had got the pricing horribly wrong as no other shop was offering that card for 25k and no other 7950 OC cards were available.

That card will fit your 400R and GS600 is more than enough. I could fit that card in CM Elite 311 too and could run it of Antec VP450 as well :)

Asus HT7950 DCII which I bought is priced at 29K on flipkart. 3k increase in pricing considering I bought it for 26k just a month back. This all is happening since Flipkart are confused about pricing of AMD cards right now.

Get HD7870 cards like this one for 25k.
HIS AMD H787Q2G2M 2 GB GDDR5 Graphic Card | Graphics Card | Flipkart.com

or if the price fluctuations don't worry you much then go for the Asus one which I bought priced at 29.3k on flipkart.

But one caution, on Maximus V Gene, you'll need to buy a two slot card in future (hence another Asus DCII card will be out of question), if you need to crossfire. Put it in first PCIe slot and put the Asus one in the bottom slot as Asus HD7950 DCII is a triple slot beast.

Sapphire HD7870 OC Edition is a gr8 option too... but I really doubt Sapphire's availability with Flipkart.

You can very well overclock the non-top card to beyond top edition speeds.. and its not the case that Top edition will overclock further since both use the same chip inside hence the OC capabilities are same for both. Maximum on default voltage is 1050 MHz for both of them on core clock.

Ask primeabgb about non-top edition of this card, you'll end up saving 3k. If not available then go for Top edition. The DCII cooler is just fantastic.

Edit Just contacted primeabgb. They are telling me that they don't have any Asus 7950(although it's listed in their website:-x) So confused. The non-top edition of 7950 has 2GB of VRAM,is it enough if I'll play Skyrim with loads of mods including the High Resolution Texture Pack?

Edit Sorry,just saw it has 3GB of VRAM. OK,going to order this as soon as flipkart return my money.

hmmm.... I posted as soon as I opened flipkart.com today thinkning that you might still be searching for it.
Dont get upset though, it happens all the time. Prices always fluctuate and the difference you paid is of 3.5k which is fine enough.
