it really depends on your mobo support, some of them support DDR3 ram and others only limited to DDR2 ram
Usually max ram is around 4 to 8 gb
and maximum GPU is around GTX 750 TI i guess (slight bottleneck)

Yeah, I avoided that and got i3-2100 instead, It's way better especially with Hyperthreading. But thanks for the reply anyway.

Anything higher than a 260X or a 750 and you're looking at serious bottleneck.

Did I do a good deal? I paid for this processor about $25 (R$70), is it expensive or cheap?

Not a bad deal at all. I purchased it for -$60 last year so $25 is a pretty good deal, considering the new Pentium series.
