This is the configuration which I thought, Please comment on it. If it's not a good configuration, please give some alternative:

Processor AMD FX 6300 7,116 (is this processor good enough for GPU?
Motherboard ASUS M5A97 R2.0 5,724
Power Supply Unit Modular PSU 500W 3,500 (is 500W sufficient???)
RAM G Skill Ripjaws X 1600 MHZ 3,000
Hard Disk Drive WD Caviar Blue 500 GB SATA 6.0 GBps 3,024
Cabinet Any Cabinet with Good Cooling Solution 2,000
Graphics Card MSI R9 270X Hawk (Editor's choice:Digit) 16,500
Display 20" or 22" Full HD Display 9,000
Total 49,864

P.S. Because of certain constraints (price), I am considering Saphire R9 270x instead of MSI R9 270x. Is there a real difference?

@ op : The board which u saw in flipkart is M5a97 LE not M5A97 R2.0 [MENTION=105611]bavusani[/MENTION] : Since m5A97 R2.0 costs 7.1k.... The total budget of amd config is pushed to 50,800

AMD FX8320 is better as it consumes half the power of FX8150..... change the PSU to Antec VP450P as it costs only 2.6k....

[MENTION=105611]bavusani[/MENTION], I am looking for a moderate CPU- strong GPU combination instead of Strong CPU-strong GPU combination.
So I think AMD configuration which you suggested works fine for me.
Question 1 7.1k for 970 chipset motherboard from ASUS. It's a bit costly. Is there any other suitable motherboard from different manufacturers?
I know if i google it i can get a lot of AM3+ socket mobos with 970 chipset. But I don't have any idea about best mobo.
Question 2
change the PSU to Antec VP450P as it costs only 2.6k....
Is it good? I have heard corsair is the best.

Q1) U can buy Gigabyte 970A-DS3P for Rs5500....
Q2) Yeah antec vp450p will do the job....Its reliable

Great. Thanks.
One last question, from where can i get this components at lowest price? (if online, than website) (if offline than, place, if possible dealer's name; travelling is not an issue, considering i will save around 3-5k, with minimum travelling exp)

choose antec vp550p at3.5k over 450p as it will come handy when you overclock your processor.
you have to get a good cabinet. choose at-least cooler master elite 311 at 2.3k or corsair spec 01 -3.k /cooler master n300/n200 or betfenix merc alpha.

Thanks bro.
Everything's settled now. I will buy these components in next 2 weeks.
I would like to ask you one question: My friend has a similar configuration, phenom II x6 1090T BE with Sapphire HD7770 GPU. His system becomes hot during long sessions of gaming. Considering my system, which is much more powerful than his, will I need cooling? (I want to overclock processor to achieve stable 4.2GHz) If yes than what kind of cooling is required? Is overclocking processor really necessary for gaming?

If u r gonna oc the CPU then its best to buy a CPU cooler.... A CM hyper 212 evo @2.5k will do the job.... OP : u can get an 8320 @ 10k.... Very capable CPU. Better than 6300+ it can be easily overclocked to 4.2Ghz+..

some people reports that fx 6300 gets hot even at stock. however for overclocking, you need to get a better cooler. get cooler master hyper 212 evo.. remember to get a cabinet which can fit 212 evo. local cabinets wont as these are very large coolers.

a power hungry 8 core fx 8320 with such an outdated 760g based chipset??? strictly no... eventhough the mobo is good, he is likely ran into problems..

The op can go for a CM K281 cabinet which costs around Rs 3000.Not only will it have better build quality than generic run of the mill cabinets but it will also provide him with enough headroom for installing aftermarket cpu coolers and other large-sized components such as high end graphics cards which don't usually fit in these flimsy local cabinets.
