To play games in High Settings on a 1080p monitor as you have mentioned you better get a i3 3220 and utilize the saved money on a better and more powerful GPU like the GTX660 or a HD7870 as bare minimum. Its the GPU thats gonna let you enjoy the games in all it glory or High Settings as you have mentioned. If budget permits get the i5 3470 and GTX 660.

Asus GTX 650ti is it the one wid boost behind??
And if yes will 450w PSU be enough for it??
 
I didn't mentioned the 'boost' version as I don't know about its availability. Even I would seriously suggest to save up some cash (4k to 5k) and get a 660; seriously. Better late than bad.

If you look around in "better" shops you can get the Gigabyte GTX660 for Rs 14500/14900 max, and the i5 3470 for Rs 11300 max.Since you wont overclock get Corsair VAlue select Rams for Rs 1450 for 4GB.And for monitor the next best excellent but a cheaper option is the AOC LED 22" (I-2251FWE) IPS panel (1920x1080 LED) - Rs 7800

So if you add up the prices you get a good rig with considerable savings.

get an i3 and atleast a HD 7850 if you want to play games on a 1080p monitor , I have 7850 2GB and Crysis 3 gives me hard time on many levels to reach stable 30-35 fps on 1080p (fxaa) , same is with FAR CRY 3 I average 35 fps on 1080p (I cant remember exactly but it wasnt the highest setting). Games are gonna get more and more demanding , If you want a future proof try and get the best graphics card for your budget and a decent processor like i3 3210/3220 if you are into gaming . I myself now think that I should have gone with 7870.

Get the I5 3450 or 3470 , a pure quad core will last long than the i3 . After 3 yrs If you think you are getting low fps need to buy a Gfx card , you can get one. But the i3 will bottleneck the new card if you buy.

Gigabyte B75M DH3 is a good mobo; else, Asus P8 B75 MLE is also a good option..

I checked the Asus P8 B75 MLE it doesnt have any USB 3.0 ports and only has 2 memory slots. I would like a mobo wid 3-4 usb 3.0 also atleast 3-4 memory slots so tht i can use the mobo for a long run(3-4 years atleast). I am ready spare extra 1k-2k bucks also for it.

What about ASUS P8B75-V???
