Hey all who read this :)

Just wondering what people would surrgest.

I was looking into getting a new processor but to do this I would need a new motherboard and new ram(which is a really pain in the behind)

Processor - was looking at -- an intel 4300 or 4400 (must be duel core/core 2 duo which ever better for the money)
Motherboard - not a clue(must be pci-e)
Ram - at least a gig and matchs mobo

*** Budget is strictly £150. ! no more ! ***

Thanks in advance

ps i mainly use ebuyer and dabs so from these shop would be much appricated

I searched newegg then realised you lived overseas so i went to dabs and searched around, i found some stuff that would work, personally i think on a tight budget AMD would be better(i have an 4200+ socket 939 and its worked for almost 2 years without braking and without lagging much on newer games).

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ AM2 2.3GHz
http://www.dabs.com/...gationKey=11147

Gigabyte AM2 AMD690V MATX A L
http://www.dabs.com/...;Quicklinx=4JKC

Corsair Memory CM2X1024 - 6400 1GB XMS2-6400 240Pin DIMM CAS5 <-- add 2 of those
http://www.dabs.com/.....50,4294955840

All together that comes out to exactly £150.49 with shipping, and you have a 2.3GHz dual core proc, with 2GB of ram.


Also when buying a new motherboard make sure its compatible with your case(or chassy depending on which you prefer) for examply you might have a BTX case in which case you would need a BTX compatible motherboard, but if you buy a BTX motherboard for an ATX case it should still work(since ATX is bigger than BTX).

And with that im off to bed so i wont be able to reply 'till tomorrow.
