And also which Mobo of the following could be best

Processor: I7 4770

2. Intel DH87MC Motherboard
3. ASRock H87 Pro4 Motherboard
4. Asus H87-Pro Motherboard

I would recommend you get a 550w PSU as that will be more then enough to power your system. It will also give you loads of room to upgrade parts in your system eg: new GPU which requires abit more power. You won't have to change the PSU in the future if you get a decent one when you first buy !

Get this PSU: http://www.ebuyer.com/413805-xfx-proseries-550w-power-s... It's a good PSU at a good price. No brainer really!

Hope this helps

any reason why you're buying a powerful processor and such a weak gpu? You'll be good with a 500W PSU(a bit big but gives room for a future upgrade in terms of graphics card) I recommend the brands corsair,xfx,seasonic,antec and pc power and cooling. Are you from india then based on your ram "rs 6050"?

If you are going for 4770k processor then why on earth are you going for H87 chipset motherboard?? 4770k is an unlocked processor meant to be overclocked and with H87 motherboards you can't overclock it. To use the full ability of a k series processor you need a Z87 motherboard.
btw there are plenty of discrepancies with your build. if you can tell me what are you planning to do with your pc and what exactly is your budget then i might help you to get the right parts at right price.

^^ Don't get a strong CPU combined with a weak GPU like that one. But what will you be using it for? Gaming/Work

In my opinion you should switch out the CPU for a FX-8320 and get a much faster GPU. This will just help overall as the 8320 is nice to have with 8 cores in multithreaded tasks. And a faster GPU will of course help a lot in games.

Of course you need another motherboard that's compatible.

I suggest you get an i5 (non k) and use the extra cash towards a better gpu. It makes no sense pairing a fully unlocked processor with a motherboard that cant utilize it

I am not going for i7 4770k I actually wanted to go for it but 4770k with z87 was over my budget so I am going for 4770 only and hence H87 Mobo but while copying this configuration I mistakenly copied 4770k from previous page.

Still a 4770 is pretty overkill for a regular pc unless you are planning for video editing and 3D rendering. an i5 4670 / 4670k is more than enough for even high end gaming. If you can mention your exact budget in INR then we might help you more.

Are you interested in overclocking? If you aren't then you will save some money by taking non overclocking parts and will be able to buy a more powerful graphics card. and what will you do with your pc? gaming or general purpose work?

Cheaper PSU option:
http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-vs550-550-watt-psu/p/it...

RAM:
You can add two of the 4 GB ram I mentioned to take the advantage of dual channel memory configuration. Or you can buy a single 8 GB and add another 8 GB later:

i7 4770 or the processor i mentioned i.e. i5 4670 is capable of handling much more powerful graphics card than this one. This 7770 is like a child's play to the i5 4670. So no need to worry.

Yes it will work just fine. Not only 4770, but it will also work with any haswell based intel LGA 1150 processor, from i3 to i7.
But unless you are planning to do video editing or 3D rendering, there is no need to go for an i7. It's a waste of money. General usage and game playing doesn't require anything better than an i5 4670.

You can go with either one of the following two:
http://www.flipkart.com/wd-blue-wd10ezex-1-tb-internal-...
Or
http://www.flipkart.com/wd-caviar-green-1-tb-desktop-in...

However if you are concerned with reliability then you can take this. It's costlier than others but it is only model in the market which offers a 5 year warranty:
