I would go for a sempron over a celeron.

How about click here click here

thats £354 in total

The motherboard is a socket 754, older, but it will take a lot of other cpu's if you ever wish to upgrade.

The extra 256Mb of ram will help alot. 512Mb extra would be even better.

The motherboard does have a 8X graphics slot, so it would take a reasonable graphics card, if medium gaming was ever needed.

Sempron for sure. Much better value so you can usually get either more memory or more hardware for the same CPU performance.
