SMPS - Corsair CX500V2 - Rs 3450
Cabinet - NZXT Beta EVO - Rs 2600
Intel Core i5 3470 - Rs 11000
Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H - Rs 5500
Gskill Ripjaws 4GB - Rs 1600

total well within 35K....

If you want monitor Dell S2240L 21.5 inch Monitor with LED

Still under 35K

Now that SMPS would help you when you put in a GPU and no oc'ing means you wont need k series....

if needed add a ups for under 3K.....

@DRACO21 that is a wrong approach
Games require better gpus and very few games need better multicore cpus
A better config would be-
i3 3220-7k
Gigabyte ga b75m d3h -4.5k
Corsair value 5gb-1k
Corsair cx 500 v2-3.5k
Cm elite 361- 2.1k
Sapphire hd 7870 ghz -16.3k
Total-34.4k

If he will get a gpu later in august, why not set up a good computer that will support it very nicely in august??

he possibly wont be able to or want to upgrade Processor and mobo both....

I want to go for i5-3570k because of hd 4000,i know i wont oc,but no other intel processor offers hd 4000.
@panwala: i will buy gpu in august it has different budget.
But can u tell me if i should go for h77 or b75?

^Dont get B75 it has many drawbacks like it lacks Intel rapid share technology etc Get a H77 mobo with i5 3570k and game till august with HD4000 and then get a GPU

well a k processor with a h 77 board will b useless it is better if he goes with i7 3770
else if u r considering to upgrade mobo after some time think first, if u buy like if u r going with i7 3770k+h77 mobo ,then upgrading to z77 mobo the 6 k spent on the h77 mobo will be useless and u have to spend atleast 10k for a good z77 mobo....

My pc is dead right now,dont remember the res,there is a link in my first post if u want to check..
@gtaogagan: does i7-3770 not k has hd4000?whats its price?

Can some1 tell me some decent h77 mobos..

ya it has intel hd 4000 graphics

u can game on it at low setting at playable fps.....

price is around 17 k

here is the link

if u r going to rely on integrated GPU please use dual channel RAM as it helps the igp

here is the benchmark for same

the benchmarks are for laptop igp's hd 4000 but it will give u an idea...

@gta0gagan : Thank you but i think i will stick to i5-3570k
(i7is out of budget).
by dual channel ram u mean 4gb X 2 ??
I am a little bit confused about ram,though i am sure to get g.skill ripjaws x i am confused by ram latencies and timing and stuff.

Whats is the difference between these two and which one should i go for? keeping in mind that i will be using h77 motherboard.

1. G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL) http://http://www.flipkart.com/g-skill-ripjawsx-ddr3-8-gb-2-x-4-gb-pc-ram-f3-12800cl9d-8gbxl/p/itmd2rysqgrmywpa?pid=RAMD2RYRAZDXEMNE&ref=6133bc10-5b77-4fe7-998b-392d91cf8972

2.G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) PC RAM (F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL) http://http://www.flipkart.com/g-skill-ripjawsx-ddr3-8-gb-2-x-4-gb-pc-ram-f3-17000cl11d-8gbxl/p/itmd2rysxxtuvfhy?pid=RAMD2RYREMKEFFSR&icmpid=reco_pp_same_ram_ram_7

Please advice.

well in ur budget i advice u to ignore ram latencies as it will not matter alot
go with the cheaper one

ya by dual channel i mean 4gb X 2

usually 4gb X 2 kit is preferred then buying two same 4gb sticks (idk why is it so but people tend to do it)...

and ya i5 3570k also has same hd4000 graphics
