Hehe yeah, 1000rs is around £10 or €12/$15. So that means he's probably not Indian anyway. In USD that could get you a decent setup. In GBP, a very nice setup.

If you could do an i5 + GTX660 setup with that, it would be an excellent setup. Will you be overclocking? Or wanting the option of SLI down the line? Does the cost cover Windows, monitor etc or do you have that stuff?

i3 + GTX660 would also be really good, not far at all behind the i5. Worth taking the i5 if it fits within your budget though.

This is a good place to start

edit: Get the i5 3570k if you want to overclock..a mobo that supports overclock and SLI/Crossfire will let you upgrade to a dual GPU setup..Asrock Z77 mobo is good for the purpose..I'd change the PSU to a Corsair or Antec.
