I am really confused.
what would be better vis-à-vis gaming:
1) Intel Core i5 2500 + H67 board + 1333 MHz RAM + HD 6950/GTX 560 ti
2) Intel Core i7 2600 + H67 board + 1333 MHz RAM + HD 6950/GTX 560 ti

above mention (Processor + Motherboard + RAM+GPU) would be better for gaming?
specially for graphic card..............

please suggest me very confuse....

There would not be much of a difference among the two AFA gaming goes. If you wanna save some bucks go with i5 combi. For GPU I'd go with 6950.

as sam9s said, there wont be much difference in gaming.

BTW what is your existing config? Which PSU to be exact? :D

Since you are mainly opting for gaming system, get the i5 2500 as the gaming performance difference is very less between the i7 2600 and i5 2500 and the premium you will pay for it is not justified. Infact my suggestion is go with i5 2400, enough horse power for gaming

Here is my suggestion:-

Intel Core i5 2400 @ 9.8K
Intel DH67CL-B3 Full ATX Board @ 5.6K (USB 3.0, SATA 6 Gbps, ATX form factor)
Corsiar 1333 MHz DDR3 4GB X 1 @ 1.2K
Corsair GS600 80+ PSU @ 4K
NZXT Gamma Cabinet @ 2.3K
MSI HD 6950 2 GB Twin Frozr III @ 16K
Razer Arctosa Keyboard & Mouse Gaming bundle @ 2.3K
Razer Goliatus Mouse Pad Fragged/Smooth Small @ 0.5K
Asus 24X DVD Writer @ 1K

Total 42.5K. Now as per our forum member vickybat, i5 2400 is still available @ 8.75K in Lamington road. His cousin has made purchase just couple days back. If you wanna reduce the price, then go with the MSI GTX 560 Ti Hawk @ 14.6K. Also Zotac GTX 560 Ti (non OC) version is available around 13 to 13.5K.

@OP: suggestion given by Clius is perfect.. MSI HD 6950 2 GB Twin Frozr III just overshoots your budget by 2K, but its worth investing over 560ti Hawk.

It entirely depends upon what are the other components you're gonna use with it, mainly CPU. If you're not buying a K series CPU from Intel then there is no point of getting P67/Z68 boards as the main purpose of K series CPU, overclocking, won't be possible.
So first confirm what are the other components you're gonna buy.

The performance difference not that much between i5 2400 and i5 2500 and I think in Mumbai, 2400 is still available within sub 9K price range.
So with the rest of the money, get the MSI Twin Frozer III HD 6950 2 GB or the Sapphire 2 GB Dirt 3 Edition.
Avoid XFX cards at all cost. neither their build quality is good, nor their after sales service. In fact the after sales service of XFX is worst.

Seconded.

@OP: if you look around the forum, you will come to see numerous complains about xfs cards & rashi's after sales service. So, avoid them.

You bought a very nice card.
So, did you get other components? or is it your first component purchase?
