Hi [MENTION=21110]bhushan2k[/MENTION],

Overall, I like your new selection for PC build. Based on your requirement, I'd suggest you to go with Intel i3 series. The Intel i3 CPU series also fulfill your requirements. I believe these components are best for programming and normal use. For RAM configuration, I suggest you 2x4GB that because its easier to set high clock compare to 4GB of single stick and you'll have 2 empty slots for future upgrade.

For future proofing, after you add the new component in the system then you really need a higher wattage PSU. The minimum requirement for Future proof rig PSU is 500 or 550W.

Hope it helps.

750Ti does not need extra power from PSU upto GTX 960 needs a 400W PSU as bare minimum

AMD cards are too expensive in India so you should be fine with the above PSUs
