Even the A8-3870 with the 6670 added on is only as fast as a hd 5770/6770, which is around 30% slower than a GTX 560. Surely there's a large price difference but you're outright wrong about the performance.

For gaming and budget I would go with AMD Llano platform. A8-3750. Couple a radeon 6670 with the on die 6550 and you will be much cheaper with the same gaming performance.

I had to change the configuration a bit and have finally decided to get this
Asus P8H61-M-LX REV 3.0 16GB DDR3 Intel Motherboard
LG 24x Sata Internal DVD Writer
Cooler Master Elite 310 Red with Side Window [case/cabinet]
Seasonic 520W Power Supply (S12II-520) [PSU/Power Supply UNit]
Intel Core i5-2400 3.10GHz Processor [Processor]
G.skill Ripjaws X 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR3 1333MHz Desktop RAM [Ram]
eVGA Geforce GTX 560 Super Clocked 1024MB DDR5 [Graphic card]
Is the 520 watts psu enough for this configuration?

I don't think I can.
I guess you'd be fine with the one you chose. It's not a great loss. The SATA 2 (3 Gb/s) connectors can also have an SSD, but in that case it would work half as fast.

that motherboard is expensive i am already over the budget can u suggest a cheaper mobo

That motherboard would work, but it's not perfect:
It has those monitor connectors, which you would not need, because you're getting a video card for that.
And it only has 4 SATA 2 (3 Gb/s) connectors. 4 would probably be more than enough for you, but if you want a solid state drive in the future, then you'll need a SATA 3 (6 Gb/s) connector.
