Source SDK help?

I got 10 dollars, And i plan to buy Garry's Mod. However, It says i need a Source engine game. But, Valve released a free Source SDK on Steam. If i download that, Will i be able to play Garry's Mod?

You don't need a source game to play, but most of the modes will be missing textures or whatever. I'd buy Garry's mod and Counter strike source.

Steam has a Thanksgiving sale where they will be 2.50 each. If they don't come on sale then (which I doubt), then they'll be on sale during the Winter sale next month.

Does TF2 or source filmmaker come with most of the basic textures/models for source games?

That said TC, you may be better off just waiting for a sale, for example, the Valve complete collection can go quite cheap along with a few other compatible games.

I think it does come with the textures, And i will probably wait until the sale and get it with Counter-Strike Source so i can get Multiplayer.

Counterstrike is needed for a lot of mods, so the Gmod/CS:S bundle is the best way to go. However, I do suggest getting the Orange Box at some point as well. Great games and it should add even more to Gmod.
