I already have 1TB Ext Hdd so I dont want to spend much on Hdd. Will buy Hdd and PSU from some local store. So leaving that budget of 16k remains for above 4 items. Thank you for your time.

    Thanks for the reply
    But you forgot/misunderstood my budget limitations. Mobos you suggested are 10k or more and 965 is also priced at 10k, so my 20,000 ($400) budget is already finished and I am yet to buy 4 other items (RAM,Cabinet,PSU,HDD). This is the reason why I am trying to stick to micro-ATX mobo.
