Im planning to upgrade my motherboard (Intel D102GGC2) and still be able to use my current Intel Pentium 4 Prescott 640 3.2 GHz CPU.
Im also buying GTX 560 so I’ll need that PCIE 2.0 x16 but still prefer buying a motherboard under $90
Ok then, i when with G.SKILL Ripjaws 8GB (2 x 4GB)
and one last question does this motherboard support the Intel Core i3-540 3.06GHZ, the spec says "..supports latest socket LGA 1155 Intel® 2nd Generation Core™ i7 / i5 / i3 Processors." and i think i3 is 1st(Previous) Generation

Core i3-540 is LGA 1156 and will not work with H61 motherboard.
Core i3 2100 will work on H61 motherboard as it is an LGA 1155 cpu.
H61 motherboard will work only with LGA 1155 cpu.
If your on budget you should get at least a pentium dual core g620,g630,g840 or g850.
