I was hoping to get a FX-6300 from AMD and a 1 TB HDD along with Speakers and a UPS too in 30k. THe config that you have stated looks a little above the price

And do I need a DVD Drive? I have a USB DVD Drive with me, which I may be able to use for installation. Can't I?

I also want the cabinet to be of a good quality to allow the the six cores to have enough cooling.

Ans: Mostly Movies
do you decide which multiplex to go to watch movies based on quality of popcorn served or the quality of screen?for anyone whose main usage is watching movies a good monitor is absolute minimum meaning at least ~8.5k for monitor only.you can buy cheap Rs.100 keyboard,mouse & a local Rs.700 psu & a Rs.1000 ups but do not save on monitor.try to get cheaper old generation intel processor & mobo to further save money.

AMD config requries a GPU, your budget wont allow a good GPU.. getting a crappy gpu isnt recommended as integrated intel will satisfy all your needs

My suggestion is Kingston HyperX Blue 4GB X 1 1600MHz DDR3 Ram which is available around 2.7K in Flipkart. If you want to reduce price then get the following:-
AMD FX-4300 @ 6.4K
Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Rev 4.0 @ 4.1K (Comes with HD 3200 iGPU which can handle 1080P content)

I bought the i3 configuration as posted in the first reply. The processor is quite cheap 7k and the mobo is 4k only. Peru much the whole package in 31k.
