hiya geeks out there. I really am in need of help.I am building a new system for myself.I have most things but i am in need of:-

1.Mobo
2.CPU
3.GPU

Now i have all the other things RAM i can manage.
primary use is school work. Basic programming(learner now), and gaming. Gaming is such that i want to play the latest games at low settings(1024x768,no AA,AF,etc)
Now could you people suggest some good deals out there.

P.S i live in Pakistan

Well a specific $$ range would be good cos what may be budget to you may be semi godly to others :p  Anyway for just casual/low res gaming i'd look at

Biostar A780L3G (if DDR3)
Biostar A780LE (if DDR2)
AthlonII X3 440
2-4 Gb RAM
HD 4670/9600GT (previous gen)
HD 5670 (latest)
430-500 watt 80+ certified PSU with active PFC

Well for most i would say forget LGA 775/DDR2 platforms for fresh builds but if u really have no alternative choices that would have to do
