Hi Guys & Girls, my motherboard has given up on me and i looking to replace, as my motherboard is quite old uses agp & pc3200 memory i was was looking to update all components to give new lease of life. Most mb now come with pci graphics so expecting to have to purchase seperate. There are many bundles out there that icluclude cpu, memory, only problem which to go for AMD x 2, Phenom or Intel dual/quad core all very confusing numbers on CPUs.
Use computer for Photo editing CS4, and odd games Far cry 2 and my fav Nightfire, sad i know.
Current system is, was
AMD X4200
250 HDD
2 GB pc3200 MEMORY
ATI 2650 AGP PRO Graphics.
Have budget of approx £170, have to allow for new graphics card.

AMD is cheaper and always been okay for me when building my own. More Bang per buck

Do not to factor in the full operating system disc with key if you only have a Restore disc. Also make sure that the Motherboard supports the Hard Drive type that you have

I have always used AMD. Think intel are over rated myself, but will goes with whatever suits my needs.
