Seems like a good MB for a basic, no frills system.

The i3-2100 will be my last upgrade till another 2 years, plus i won't be doing crossfire, will be using single slot cards only!
The 6750 is for one more year.
I am planning to get 3GB Of DDR3 Memory(Using Win 7 32Bit), its enough right?
i dont think there are any games out there which use full 4GB?

Now with all these requirements in mind, is the mobo good?

Really with the memory you want to get 2 x 2 DDR3 this will bring you up to 4GB total and with a 32bit OS read somewhere around 3.2GB. This board only has 2 memory slots so you would be unable to reach 3GB.
The Intel® Core™ i3-2100 will work well for your needs but I would advise that you step up to the Intel Core i3-2105 which comes with the Intel HD 3000 graphics for back up graphics to use till you get the video card that you want.

@IntelEnthusiast:-
I Already have the ATi 6750 Which Has Been Working Great For Me, Just Bought It 1 Month Ago.. :) 
I Am Fixed On The i3-2100, Just Needed The Opinion On The Motherboard.
I Think I Will Upgrade To 64Bit Win 7, To Read The Whole 4 Gb!

The motherboard is fine. I like 4 memory slots like on the DH67BLB3 but is going to be about $25 more. Good call on moving up to the 64bit Windows 7.

Not to butt in however you might want to look at a couple things: 1. Combo Deals, 2. 2x4GB RAM. Just looking you can get DDR3 1333 MHz 2x2GB ~$26 or DDR3 1333 MHz 2x4GB for ~$40~$45. RAM 'today' is cheap...

I have three Intel DH61WW Motherboards with i3-2100. I facing freezing problem on all three mobos for last one year. And each mobos are replaced lots of times from Intel RMA(Digicare). I waste my lots of time for it.
I feel H61 chipset is failed. So no one purchase a H61 chipset motherboards. Coz Intel may continue this dirt chipset for new Ivy Bridge processor.
