@lunyone
Instead of suggesting my own build, I just want to say that I'd strongly recommend switching out the Samsung 840 250GB for a Plextor M5S 256GB.
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/plextor-internal-hard-driv...
It only increases the price by about $11.50, but you get a significantly faster drive (granted that's arguably not important for a gaming system) with significantly greater endurance for the NAND flash.

I'm not saying that the 840's lower endurance necessarily will cause issues, it probably won't, but by my calculations with it, it's pretty close to being dangerously low. The small cost can be offset by a cheaper DDR3-1600 2x4GB memory kit if necessary.

Also, do you have experience with the V3 models of the Corsair CX series? I ask because I can't seem to find any professional reviews of them. The V1 and V2 models were pretty meh, but the V3s are rated for more power delivery and better efficiency at each wattage point, so they seem better. I'd just like some confirmation on them being better other than rated efficiency and power delivery, if anyone has any to offer.

I don't have any experience with the Corsair V3 model. I also don't have a link to a review of them (I'm thinking that because of the iffiness of the V1 & V2's that there wasn't any V3's sent out for review, but just a guess). I would think the V3 should be better, but who knows for sure. The price is pretty good and generally my experience with Corsair PSU's have been good (it's been a bit since my last purchase of one). This version of PSU is Bronze Certified, so hopefully that means it is at least decent for what you pay for.

Sorry, I thought they'd reply :(  I'll throw something together for Australian pricing and another for Indian pricing if possible and give what seems to be the best option.

Best solution

That build is for little to no CPU overclocking and it comes in at under $1050.

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/F4F2
This build is a little out of budget at under $1150, but has more overclocking headroom on the CPU. However, after a little thinking, I came to the conclusion that unless you're dead-set on significant overclocking on the CPU, the first build's lower price makes it the better option since the second build really isn't going to top out the first by enough for the extra money to be worth spending for a gaming system.
