I've got no idea about motherboards. I've just ordered a pc with a ECS C51GM motherboard. Is this any good?

The specs of the PC are:

Processor: AMD64 Athlon X2 4600+ 1Mb cache AM2

Memory: 2.0GB DDR2 533mhz (2 x 1GB)

Hard Disk Drive: 300GB S-ATA2 3.0Gb/s 16MB buffer (Recommended)

Graphics card: 1 x NVidia GeForce 7900GT PCI-E

Sound Card: Audigy Soundblaster 7.1 24-bit.

Its meant to be a gaming PC but i've suddenly become worried that my motherboard wont be able to handle it.

Does anyone know whether this motherboard/specs will actually give me a good gaming PC?

Hi, you shouldn't have any problem gaming with those specs.

Have a read of this if you wish, its an independant review of the board click here I have to agree with Technotiger, its a budget motherboard but there is nothing wrong with that as you have a very fast processor excellent graphics card etc etc.
Very nice spec all in all and should last you for some time to come with any luck.
