I believe he stated his budget was 22,000 rs, which according to google, is Indian Rupees. Comes out to about $400 budget. For the sake of sanity, people can assume that this is a ~$500 budget build with the HDD and Graphics already taking the first $100.

He's stated he already has a HDD and GPU; the computer is going to be used for Graphic Simulation and VMWare - but not be used for gaming; looking for low power usage; and that his current build he's looking at is:

CPU: FX 8350
Mobo: Asus M5A88-M
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb (unsure if it is 2x4gb or 4x2gb)
PSU: Corsair CX500

If you're looking for low power consumption, you want Intel. AMD uses a lot more power to perform as well as Intel. For the original poster, these are links to a US site. You can use it as a reference to whichever site you use.

CPU: Intel i3 - 3220 - $130 (7109 rs)
Motherboard: Asrock H77 ATX - $70 (3828 rs)
Case: Cooler Master Elite 430 - $40 (2188 rs)
RAM: Crucial 8GB DDR3 1333 - $34 (1860 rs)
PSU: Corsair CX500 - $40 (2188 rs)

You did not specify if you had an OS already. This brings you to about 17,200 rs. Leaves you space to change things, or account for the OS.

Reading the guidelines to asking for help on a build would have been fantastic.

Yes please read the guidelines next time. But if you are going for graphic simulation the build MasterMace suggested is fine but I would recommend and upgrade in ram to ddr3-1600 and possibly go with 12 to 16gb of ram depending on graphics intensive the simulation you are doing is. Maybe some thing like this.
