  1. Have you checkout out our System Builder Marathon builds, such as http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-your-own-budget-gaming-pc,3780.html ? These are updated regularly and provide a good baseline. Other members here will pitch in with partpicker lists, too.
  2. Do you already have the ram, powersupply, hard drives and case? Also I am assuming you are from India based on your name but let me know if that is not the case since prices are higher there than in the US.

    The i7 is better than the i5 but the difference between the 2 is not noticeable enough when gaming to be worth the $100 difference.
  3. Here is a full build for about $1050 USD

    Note: you would want a cpu cooler as well which would add $30-$100 depending on how much you want to overclock.
  4. GPU choice will depend on PSU. What is it?
    CPU/Motherboard choice will depend on whether you plan on ever overclocking
