I am planning to assemble a gaming desktop.

Initially i thought to get the i7-3770k (INR Price 17700 RS/-) processor but the cost is too high it seems.

How good is 3rd Gen. i5 processors which will be compatible with the new games (FPS games) making it future proof for atleast 5-6 years & also would be directx 11.0 compatible

Please suggest some intel processors within INR 12000 Rs/-

If so, then which processor is good enough to use along with a GTX 560 TI or HD 7850 2GB

Graphics budget: (Within INR 15000 Rs/-)

other specs:
Ram: 4GB *2
motherboard: Intel DH77KC
Hard Disk : 2TB

Also i will be planning to purchase this setup by the end of July or first week of August.

Thanks for your help in advance.

CPU -> Core i5 2500K, if u plan to overclock, else
Core i5 2500 , around ₹600/- cheaper :D 

Both processors are more than powerful enough. New 3rd gen processors are only 5% faster on average...but almost ₹2000/- costlier here in India coz of newness tax :p 

GPU -> 1GB AMD HD6950 or Nvidia GTX 560 , which ever brand u prefer :) 


For rough component prices, see the spreadsheet below,
