    Hi, after destorying my amd athlon 2600+ ive decided to upgrade.

    Im just a little stuck on what to get, i use my pc for gaming thats about all really, and i have a budget of around 260 for a mobo and cpu. Also i would like to beable to overclock.

    This is what i have come up with;

    AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 90nm (Socket 939) - Retail (ADA3700BNBOX) (CP-121-AM)

    DFI LanParty UT NF3 Ultra (Socket 939)

    ThermalRight SI-120

    I would prefer the mobo tobe AGP, becuase ive just folked out 170pounds for a gfx card.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd recommend the ASRock Dual SATA motherboard, that way you can keep your new graphics card, then further down the line you can slot in a PCI Express card as antother upgrade. Unfortunately OcUK don't stock them, but they are readily available if you hunt around. Loads of people on here have them (including me) and find them to be excellent.
