    A budget build here.
    Go for a used i5 2nd Gen + H61 Setup if it's available to you.
    you might be able to save some cash which you can utilize getting yourself a decent GPU
    also you don't need a fancy motherboard, it won't get you more performance at all by itself.
    bear in your mind that i5 2nd to 5th gen all are almost equivalent in performance when used alongside a Dedicated GPU so save cash and go for the 2nd Gen that is almost in every way as good as a 5th gen in performance with a seperate Graphic Card

    If you need a lappy try for ASUS ROG series or Alienware (1400+ i think).

    Any thing less than 960 is old now. Infact 960 is becoming pretty standard in most of the laptops now a days. Get a 960 + skylake i5.

    Prices in india are very high and most of the systems are nearly going out of the market.
    Even walmart gives a good system for nearly the same price.

    RAM: Crucial Ballistix 2 x 4GB
    Monitor: 1 x LG 23MP67VQ-P Black 23 inch 1920x1080
