IMO you will not need budget of 25k for a good machine which will be used for web development and movies.

However if you are looking to use the machine for long term like 4 years I would suggest following

Intel i5-4440 ~11000
Corsair Value Select 4GB DDR3 1600 MHz ~2700

For mother board you can choose any B85 chipset mobo from Asus/Gigabyte depending upon service quality in your city, both costs near 6000.

i generally keep config for long and dont upgrade unless its absolutely needed.

can i go for intel MB ? in case i go for above configuration
and why intel config why not AMD based ? something like AMD FX 8350 with ASUS M5A97 R2.0
a ATX MB will be useful with extra slots.

your configuration AMD FX 8350 with ASUS M5A97 R2.0 is good but i wonder whether you going to need it. You can use AMD FX 6300 also with almost half cost. Just upgrade ram to 6 or 8GB you will get good performance
