Decent budget motherboard and processor (AMD)

Hi all

Looking to upgrade my PC from the AMD 64 Athlon 3700+ socket 939 processor currently installed on an AGP motherboard - with something a bit pokier. I know I will probably need to change the memory and also my AGP graphics card with a PCI version.

So, any suggestions on what to get - without breaking the bank. Looking to spend around £ 60/70 on the processor and mobo - so looking for suggestions fo rwhat to go for and where to get it..

Currently using an AMD processor, but don't really know the equivalent Intel products.

I have 2 1TB drives waiting for a new home with a fresh copy of Windows 7...

hi i have a gigabyte ga 61sme-s2 with a amd64 x2 4200 2.2ghz cpu see here - and here -
they are in a little used system running windows 7 at the moment, if that is any good for you, you can have it for £50.00

I'm in lincoln collection would be preferred, but postage at cost can be arranged.
A PCI-Express graphics card is a better choice, PCI cards tend to be rather expensive for what they are.

At a budget of £60-70 for both you're going to be pushing it, you'll probably end up close to £80. Remember you may also have to buy new memory as well.

As for CPUs the Athlon II X2 240 and the Celeron E3200/E3300 look like good bets.
