Buy speaker and UPS later,or you can get AMD FX 8320for the CPU and buy a good UPS.

speaker later ? how can he enjoy gaming without speakers/headphones? also skipping ups is a bad idea imo.

Thank you all for your suggestions. But, most of these things are not under the itemized budget I've mentioned.
and I was looking for a 24" monitor under 10K budget. I've also mentioned that I don't want to spend more than 10K on the Graphics card.
thanks for understanding and helping.

@ op in case if you are not an hardcore gamer, you can cut down R9 270x and settle down with Gtx 650ti boost @12k , and Get FX 8320 :)

for cabinet, go for betfenix merc alpha at 2.9k. for psu get seasonic s12ii 520. i5 3450 is already EOLed. you will not be able to find any mobo later say after 2 years. you are doomed if you face any such issue and the only option would be upgrading both cpu and mobo.so choose fx 8320. for monitor choose AOC i2369VM or dell s2240l. for gpu, go for 270x from zotac/asus/sapphire/HIS.
