Go for intel core 2 duo, its better bang for buck than AM2. Add this to your spec or go with on of the core2duo bundles.

Also switch your cooler to a 775 one. I would recommend a scythe ninja or infinity.

Hes not buying AM2 thts S939 m8 ;)

And yes Intel Core duo is better atm :) could take a gamble for AM2 socket but no point may as well go core duo.

tbh i would spend most of the money on the motherboard (are you going to be overclocking etc?) better memory .. even a better CPU ...

no not going to overclock it it just seems that intel core 2 seems really expensive .

Not true. E6400 will outperform x2 5000 and only costs £10 more than the x2 4200 u want to buy. The E6300 will in fact stomp on a x2 4600 and is cheaper than the x2 4200.

My recommendation will be an influenced one due to the fact that I have a Gigabyte, but essentially its what features u want on the mobo and what you are prepared to spend.
