I'm adding new parts to my old PC and this what i chose:

Motherboard: H61M-P20(G3)
CPU: Intel Celeron Dual-Core G540 @ 2.5GHz
GPU: HD6670 1GB/DDR3
RAM: 2x2GB 1333MHz Kingston
HDD: Maxtor 80GB 6L080L0
PSU: 400W
Monitor resolution: 1280x1024

Is this compatible with each other? Can i connect that HDD to that motherboard? And can i play: Arma2,Hitman Absolution,Farcry3,GTA4,Battlefield3,COD MW3,NFS MW 2 at high details on that resolution? Or could i change something for same amount of money that could be better than this?

Because my video card is overheating(@ 97C on idle) and CPU has one core and i cant even run game called Super Mario Portal i get like 2fps barely.... and also i cant watch videos on youtube i can play them on 240p with lag also. My budget is 142 euros(16.000rs in my country) You can go here and build a PC http://emmi.rs/konfigurator.37.html
I need to replace MB,CPU,GPU and RAM. Im building this PC with those parts for my brother and in my signature its his our PC but at december or january i will be building myself PC for 350 euros so i will be getting HD7770 at least. Cheers

Are you sure about GTA4 and Arma2 because they are CPU demanding games. How well is your G630? Could i create server for minecraft and at same time play on it with ppl? And what is difference between 6670 DDR3 and DDR5? Its 2.000 more and i can't go more from 16.000 so its absolute max.

And could you tell me guys, can i link that Maxtor HDD that i mentioned to H61M-P20 motherboard? I'm asking this because im not sure and because its very old HDD as you can see. If you can answer quick as you can because for about 6 hours from now i will be buying those part and who helps i will give him a cookie :)

Btw i'm going to sleep now(i know 5hrs isn't enough) and as soon as i wake up i will come here and look at your suggestions and by the conclusion i will go and buy. And please tell if HDD will have connectors to connect to that HDD. And seriously can i play GTA4,Farcry3 and Arma2 because i love those games and because of them i'm buying this PC. I will be also using ICEnchanter for GTA4 for better graphics but if i can't i will not gonna :) . Hope you will answer me Cheeeeers :)  :)

gta 4 will struggle coz its a poorly coded game while the others should run well enough.
heres the build i suggest for 16000 rs
intel G630 - rs.3300
gigabyte H61M-DS2 mobo - rs.2800
kingston ddr3 1333mhz 2*4gb ram - rs.2500
Sapphire 7750 1gb - rs.7000
this is exactly the build i have too and it plays all games at near max settings at 1440*900
