I don't know what the conversion is for US to British money is, but I found THIS at newegg.com, they have a combo deal below the picture which includes a processor. I like Gigabyte boards, I've owned a couple and they've been good to me. I also prefer as many PCI slots as I can get, because of the cards I put in, and I've found that if you go with Intel socket 775 you have a larger choice of boards... :thumbsup:

edit: I forgot something...

hi thanks for your help wildabeast but the motherboard is a little out of my price range as i have only got $230 to $240 for a mother board and processor but i have found one on newegg that is just like what i am looking for.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane 2.6GHz Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Black Edition Processor
GIGABYTE GA-M61P-S3 AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 ATX AMD Motherboard

all for $174.98.98 which works out to be 87.79

which means that i could also get some more memory as mine will not be compatiable with a new motherboard

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory 24.57

this is the link to it could you let me know what you think please.. cheers

click me

the ram is at the bottom as well
