Hello guys, im writing here today cause i have a doubt on what to get and dont have a very good budget to buy stuff.

i was researching for some affordable hardware and i came up with this mobo

GIGABYTE GA-M61PME-S2.

on the others things i was planning on using with this board are :
Video card:
SPARKLE SFPX95GT1024U2H GeForce 9500 GT 1GB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Brisbane 2.5GHz Socket AM2 Dual-Core Processor Model ADO4800IAA5DO.

I want the pc mostly for gaming and 3d desings but im not sure if that mobo will do the trick.

im in a very tight situation and can only spend 160 dollars. those 3 things is what i need but feel free to let me know what goes well with those also. i had my pc stolen from my house and i had to buy everything else back so im very low on money and need the pc to work.

Well Thanks for your prompt reponse. Good day.

The board should work fine with the 4800. Be sure to install the device drivers off the motherboard cd, especially the lan driver. Vista may find all the drivers, but check the device manager section if something doesn't work.

No info on the sparkle video card. Sparkle makes good power supplies, but I don't know who makes their video cards.
