    You should just get the MB + 5800k + 8 GB memory + PSU now. It should run most new games adequately at medium settings if you OC the memory and CPU.

    Then buy a worthwhile video card later when you have the cash. If you try to fit everything into a small budget, it will come out like a budget computer.

    The other option is have a lot of patience and wait for sales. I don't know about India but I can find deals here(US) all the time. Like my Corsair CX430 was $30 - $10 rebate. Have patience and you can have a good gaming computer with that budget.

    Make sure you get the CX 430 ver. 2

    The first version only has 27 amps on the 12v
    The second version has 32 amps and perform better overall.

    by cabinet do you mean case?
    micro atx is a standard so as long as it is labeled micro atx then it should fit in the same case. The screw hole locations and size have specific specs they have to follow.

    That PSU looks fine. When you buy it, look at the specs on the 12v rail to confirm that it's the newer version. My CX 430 power my z77 board, 3 drives, fans, radeon 7850, water cooling. I wouldn't buy the 27A version of the CX430 if you plan on throwing any decent GPU in there.
