Need Guidance to Build HTPC

Hello everyone, my colleague intends to build an HTPC and has requested my help. As my awareness are close to zero on HTPC set ups, I need help in building the new HTPC. The budget and requirements, though not precise, are as follows:
  • Budget: Currently thinking of allocating Rs25,000, but willing to increase if its worth it. I am told to search for the right configuration by not keeping a budget in mind.T
  • Existing hardware setup: None
  • Components from the existing setup that you intend to keep: Not Applicable
  • Components that you have in mind for your new PC: I am not good in selecting the right configuration for an HTPC. If members can give me an idea for what I can get with the initial allocated budget for just the CPU alone (Rs25000), I might be able to build on from that.
  • Plans to upgrade in the future: Yes, but not for the CPU in the immediate 2-3 years. So the current CPU must have the hardware that can meet future upgrdaes on the screen, speakers and other add ons.
  • Places from where you will buy components along with your location:Bangalore
  • Are you comfortable with buying secondhand components from the Erodov market? : Always
  • Intended use of the PC [gaming/office use/rendering/HD playback etc] : Intends to use for Movies- Cable and HD DVDs/ Blurays (60%), Audio (30%), internet browsing (10%).
  • Brand preferences: Looking for insights
  • Monitor resolution and size: Looking for insights
  • Will you be overclocking your setup?: Not Applicable, I guess
  • Which OS will you use?: Windows 7 / 8
