At a budget of 25K Core i5 2500K + Z68 mobo is not recommended and since you're not gonna overclock, the CPU+mobo combo you've chosen is practically useless. GEt a Core i5 2400 based system.

Intel Core i5 2400 @ 9K
Intel DG67BL-V3 @ 5.4K
Corsair 4GB X 1 1333 MHz Value Ram @ 1.2K
NZXT Gamma Cabinet @ 2K
FSP SAGA II 500W @ 2.1K
MSI HD 6670 1 GB GDDR5 @ 5.4K

No, Gamma is not available in here and also in Kolkata availability of NZXT products are very limited.


BMG ftw!!
@Cilus: just a very little modification of price, i5-2400 is available at 9.25K +tax, not at 9K. ;)
