Do you live in INDIA, if yes, that the cost of computer parts there is quite above normal.
About your build:
you should buy a dual channel RAM instead
Graphics: Maybe a HD6670 from ATi

An HD6670 would bottleneck your 2500k massively. You would be better off buying an i3-2120 and an HD6870.

That's pretty much true, nacos.

i was planning to buy the i5-2500k to be future proof, i had planned to change the mobo to Asrock z68 pro3 gen3. Your thoughts please..

Sorry for the noob questions, cause i am a noobie with this new build ;)

you may wanna try on checking the ivy bridge equivalent of i5 2500k :)  as for the board you plan on upgrading in the future, i've read some reviews/comparison and ASRock z68 pro3 is among the best z68 chipsets :)  for GPU, hd 7770/6850/6870 or the equal nvidia gpus
