    Footy Manager is one of the few games that is optimised for dual core processors. So if you can afford one I'd recommended getting one. I've got a 4400+ and it runs this like a dream.

    the 165's are managing fx60+ speeds with relative ease, plus you get the 1meg cache of the 4400+.

    Then you have the intel option - which most here will slate - but it's also very good.

    920
    Asus P5WD2
    XP-120
    Whichever DDR2 fits your budget
    PCI-E

    You'd be looking at an easy 4ghz.

    Both options are very good.

    I guess it depends on your preference/what you have alreayd which you can use.
