The best for you is to go with i3 6th Gen
i3 6100 - 8.5k
H110 Motherboard - 4.8k (Find the cheapest one from Gigabyte/Asus)
8GB DDR4 - 3k

Total - 16.3k

This will be fine for the basic programming and very basic games. You can upgrade to any i5/i7 6th Gen when needed.

You can use the existing Corsair CX430 PSU & Bijli Cabinet along with the Monitor & kb/mouse.

You can add a GPU later when you have enough cash or need it.

You can play cpu intensive games only until you add a dedicated gpu.

You can sell the whole system excluding the monitor & PSU for 12k
