20,000 rupees (Indian?) equates to about USD$400
Would you be purchasing locally or importing?

Some links to your supplier/pricing might be helpful.
I have no idea whether your selected configuration would be good for your purposes. Hopefully one of the professional system builders here can chip in with advice on that score.

The motherboard has a LGA 1156 H Socket, this has been replaced by the LGA 1155 H2 Socket, therefore would it not make sense to purchase a board based on newer technology ?

What use is the PC for ?

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

An i3-550 and the socket 1156 MB are first generation Sandy Bridge and he is recommending the second generation to you as being a better choice. We in the US do not know if the suppliers in your country are charging premium prices on the newer technologies at this time so we really do not know if it will be in your budget. Here in the US, the components are similar in pricing and the CPU's are significantly better overall in technology, plus since it is the ability to upgrade later to a second gen. i5 or i7 if needed is a plus and some of the boards will even be able to support the Ivy Bridge series coming out here in a couple of months.
Most here prefer Intel chipsets on motherboards NOT made by Intel, but those made by Asus, Gigabyte, and others due to better configurations and other features.
By April the Ivy Bridge CPU's will be out (at least here) a few weeks so the later i3's should come down a bit there and the price of hard drives should be down a bit more also by then so you would probably be better off waiting a bit. Go with the larger amount of memory on the graphics card (1GB or more) and if possible, the faster graphics memory (GDDR5) would be better if possible.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
