Ok here is something I came up with for starters

MTHBD
ASRock 880G EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 880G

Unfortunately every combo I came up with was way over your budget. The cheapest Intel system I came up with was $930 shipping and taxes.

i agree with cthunder067.
intel will be more expensive! but in gaming the i5 processer is better than the amd phenom ii x4 955. so according to your budget build an amd rig. dont worry.... in gaming the gpu does most of the work!
so i would go with

amd phenom ii x4 955 black edition
asrock 870 extreme3
radeon 5870 or the 6850 (the 5870 is better)
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600
if you get short in cash buy a used pc case and invest the saved money on a good gpu.

Sorry I was at work. :heink: 
Ok the board I recommend and the lowest sandy bridge processor would set you back a pretty penny.

$123.99US
ASRock P67 PRO3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

$209.99US
Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And I can only imagine what a Sandy Bridge processor would cost in India :ouch: 

Seriously I would just stick with AMD build and be happy.

I haven't forgotten about you. My first build was 40,000 without a monitor. Oh speaking of monitors, you definitely need to find a better place than this site. The cheapest 23in monitor was over 11, 000. Anyways I will try and get the price lower than 40,000. Probably means you will have to go with a 640hd instead of 1TB.

I don't like either board, but this isn't my system. Hopefully a few other intel users will stepup and post.

Actually that ram works with AMD boards. Just have to go into the bios and configure it.

get a better gpu! hd 5770, if you are on a budget. the gts 450 wont be enough at that resolution. the i3 processor is okay... but the amd phenom iix4 955 smokes it when it comes to gaming. but in gaming the gpu does the most of the part. so if you are going with the i3 processor get a good gpu. like the gtx 460, hd 6850 etc...
but if you are on a budget get the hd 5770. its a good card(actually a mid level card) but you wont be able to play metro 2033, crysis on maximum settings.(you can play these games but not on maximum settings.)

If it's this card ASUS ENGTS450 DirectCU TOP/DI/1GD5 GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit DDR5. Then yes I would go for it.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This card beats out the 5770 cards
http://www.pureoverclock.com/review.php?id=1068&page=1

Lastly, what is the total cost of your system thus far? If you have room for it in your budget you could get this card ASUS GTX 460 http://cgi.ebay.in/ASUS-GTX460-768-MB-GDDR5-PCI-Express....
