1. What is your MAX budget?
80k to 85k
2. Are you open to alternate ideas/products giving similar better performance but offering more VFM/ sellers? If not- why?
3. What is the purpose of the computer? (Note: If you are planning to say multimedia, you will have to be more specific as all types of systems are capable of doing that)
4. Planning to overclock?
yes i can

Windows 7 64 Bit Home Premium
6. How much hard drive space is needed?
7. What resolution will the screen run at?
8. How would you rate your hardware knowledge from the count of 1-10? (1 being the lowest, 5 being you are somewhat in sync with the current performers and 10 being the highest)
9. Have you ever built a desktop before or will this be done by an assembler?
i have built
10. When are you planning to buy the system?
By end of April 2012

Monitor, Mouse.lrd screen
13. Which city do you live in and are you open to buying from shops from other city/states?
i live in raipur (C.G) i can buy from different city
14. Mention any other points if deemed necessary
i7 processor if in budget or i will increase my budget
Okay, let's start with the reasoning.
I went with the i5 2500K because it is cheap, and has massive overclocking potential. I paired it with the Gigabyte GA Z68XP UD3 which can be grabbed for under Rs. 12000. It's a nice board with three USB 2.0 headers, and one USB 3.0 header + XFire/SLI support.
Probably the best you can get at the price.
I only picked two 4 GB Corsair Vengeance RAM sticks because don't need any more. BF3 barely utilizes 2-3 GB and Skyrim can be patched to use 4 or 5 tops. Heck! It should be enough even for intensive work-outs (Excel), or 3D Modeling. But you're always free to grab two more sticks and up to 16 GB (or) just max out to 32 GB.
Moving on... I grabbed the OCZ Agility 3 60 GB SSD for a little under 7K. Great performance, and perfect for binding the OS/Important applications.
Read the review here.
And for your storage, I chose the Seagate Barracuda 2 TB HDD.
What better choice than the AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6950 3GB? Priced at under 30K, it romps the GTX 580 and gives the GTX680 some stiff competition as well.
Put em' all inside the Cooler Master 690 II Advanced, a cheap and nice case. Power em' with the Corsair GS700, adequate wattage, good performance and generally, good feedback.
Oh, I forgot to mention the CM Hyper 212 EVO which will serve as your cooling solution for the i5 2500K. It's darn good, and can take 5 GHz (OC'ing) easily.
I know you mentioned the i7, but really, that's not needed. The 2500K is a monster, especially when overclocked. It gives it's older brother the i7 2600K MAJOR COMPETITION, even at stock speeds, and all that for Rs. 7000 less.
Man, you're lucky. I'm building something similar but it's going to take a-while and that sucks!
Anyway, good luck!

Good choices, but change the mobo to a UD5
Switch vengeance. Get rid of the SSD. Asynchronous MLC chips are terrible.
BTW, you mean Corsair GS700?
I'll be honest with you; flipkart is not always well priced for PC components.
CPU: Intel i5 2500K Rs12296
CPU cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H60 Liquid CPU Cooler Rs 4,200.0 or if you want air cooling go for Coolermaster V6 muscle CPU Cooler Rs 3600
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V PRO GEN3 Motherboard Rs 15200
Memory : Corsair Vengeance 4 GB Rs 1600 or Gskill RipjawsX 4GB RAM Rs1900
Storage for OS :Kingston 64 GB SSD for RS 4322 or OCZ PETROL 64GB SSD for Rs 5401
Storage :Seagate Barracuda 1 TB HDD for RS 5600
Graphics card: PowerColor AMD/ATI HD 7950 3 GB Rs 28938 or Asus AMD HD 7950 3 GB (Price not known yet)
PC case: NZXT Phantom 410 Crafted Series Cabinet Rs6000 Or Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced Rs 5480
Power supply:Corsair 750TX 750 Watts PSU Rs 6822
Total price: 84978 to 86057
All prices: form flipcart and Prime abgb.
wait for GTX 680 to come ,so that you will have choice!
I have cooler master cm 690 II advanced case.I would suggest cm 690 II advanced as It has lot of space to manage wiring also space Water cooling radiator. You will be surprised to see how many Fans can be fitted in this beast. But there is downside. If you don't have air conditioned room for computer ,this case tend to suck dust alot as case is made up of metal mesh at front and top. You will find yourself cleaning up dust filters provided in case ones in 2 weeks.Though you can go for NZXT case .
Also If I were you ,I wouldn't go for HDD for this whole year as HDD factories in Thailand will be in ideal stage till the end of this year....I suggested 1TB HDD Rs 5600. Those prices are so much unreasonable. I bought same HDD for Rs 3200 1 years ago.This could be a point of debate though.You can also go for higher capacity SSD and use older HDD if you have one.
I agree with ArcherMcKinley that i7 2600k isn't going to make much difference.That's why I suggested water CPU cooler to for i5 2500k so that you wil be able to overclock it a bit so you will be able to boost your stock speed to same performance as i7 2600k.
One last advice: Don't go cheap on Powersupply at last moment. ( personal experience :D )
By the way, Congrats for new Rig and best of luck!

@ Extreme Gamer: Asynchronous MLC chips aren't that bad! Besides, the SSD is cheap and fast, barely going to notice any difference.
In regard to your comment on Flipcart, I merely use it as a point of reference, for the buyer, who may be interested in purchasing online and or, seeing what it looks like and what sort of customer reviews the product has..
By the way, thanks for pointing out that it's the Corsair GS700. I wasn't paying too much attention while I was typing!
Also, I don't see what's wrong with the Vengeance.
@ shriniwasrocks: Liquid cooling takes some maintainence, and is a hassle to set up, unless you know what you're doing. To be honest, OP doesn't need it. As I mentioned before, someone OC'ed the 2500K to 5 GHz with Hyper 212 EVO and temps stood 74-76.
Ofcourse, LC looks cool and you'll probably be able to keep the rig a lot stable-r. All I'm saying is, that it's not required.
And yeah, he'd be able to grab a GTX680 for Rs. 30000 - Rs. 35000.
Heard that the HDD prices are coming down, soon.
Playing the waiting game isn't a bad idea. What with Ivy Bridge coming out, and the rest of the Kepler line-up shortly after. Both could have an effect on the pricing. Maybe AMD will lower the prices of the 7XXX series, and perhaps Intel will do the same with Sandy Bridge.
Just my thoughts.
@Archer: The performance is very bad. With some data the speed falls to even below 200MB/s sequential!
6996 is a lot ok. For mobos either Asrock or Gigabyte UD5 for sandybridge IMO.
Asus just overcharges for all its features.
@srinivas: The CM HAF 922 is any day a better purchase, as are the CM Storm cases.
does anybody knows what is the expected price of gt680 here in india???
If gt680 is around 32k,i would have preferred it in place of 7950.spending 3k more is completely justified by the fps it give in many games.
@ Extreme Gamer: Rarely see an ASRock around here.
It's Asus without the "bells and whistles", basically.
OCZ Agility 3 Review - It serves it's purpose well as an OS drive and for homing important data/applications. OP can take it, or leave it and spend the extra money on the GPU.
@ avtar2008: Anywhere between Rs. 30000 and Rs. 35000.
Hey! There is nothing wrong with the Agility 3 (not anymore atleast). I heard there was a firmware issue when they initially released, but all units that are in the market currently (unless old) come with an upgraded firmware, out of the box.
Not too hard to do so even if it isn't, so yeah...
