Well basicly i was looking into buying a new processor but in order to get a modern processor i will need a new motherboard.

my current system is:

Processor: Intel® Celeron® CPU 2.80GHz
Memory: 768MB RAM (DDR)
Hard Drive: 79 GB (ide)
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT (PCI-E)

(if need more info replay and i will get back to you)

I have heard that amd are cheap but you get more bang for your money with intel.

My absolote max is £150.

I am from the UK and tend to use Ebuyer alot, so if the parts came from there would be a great help.

ps if yout choice of motherboard has a differant set of ram eg not DDR then i will need more ram (1bg is plenty), so this must be budgeted.

Many thanks in advance

This combo probably goes a little over budget, but would be a lot nicer. Keep the same RAM from up in post #2.
