You from india ? hi.

i5 2500k is a good one. hmm you should get 67-68 series motherboard for good headroom for OC that is if you plan OCing the 2500k.

I think 8 gb g.skill is also cheap but not sure about the current pricing.

You should go with a good PSU a, the HD 6950 PSU requirement is a minimum of 500w so go with Corsair though expensive. But AMD recommends a 750w with two connectors.

A cooler Master Elite 370 is for 2,650 INR, do you live in Mumbai ? if you do then you can check the pricing at lamington road.

HSF a CM 212 EVO or 212 Plus.

Once member suggest you a good budget system , I would go and find out the rates.

A few things I see

1.) You did not choose a power supply. Find a power supply from a reputable brand and see where you can fit it in your budget.
- While most cases have free power supplies, you do not want one of those for your system. Reason is that these are not reliable, they may be rated higher than what they can deliver and worst, they do not have warranties and are mostly not built well. They could explode, catch fire or not give stable power. Not to scare you, just that a 6950 + 2500k is mid-range territory. at this point, you want a good power supply.

2.) Choose your mobo first. You are planning to get a "k" processor, that means overclockable. Make sure you get a motherboard that allows overclock. (P or Z series, H won't allow cpu OC). These motherboards are generally more expensive. If you do not plan to overclock, get a non "k" processor. Will save you a lot. You also might want to get a good mobo instead of a random one. Don't have to a be an expensive one, just one from a reputable brand will do.

3.) If you do plan to OC, Get a good heatsink fan or plan to get a good HSF down the line. Make sure you are not using stock HSF when you OC.

4.) a 6950 for just 5k INR? Too cheap. Unless the price has fallen that low already... might want to double check.

You can get a lower-end CPU and monitor to have enough for a power supply.

Lastly, I will echo what lesterq said. Wait for Ivy Bridge.While you won't be able to afford it, Sandy Bridge and it's mobo might go down in price enough after a few months for you to afford a PSU without sacrificing other stuffs.
