  1. You probably could find some of the Phenom 9XX or Athlons on ebay...
  2. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-adx260ocgmbox

    this is about the best for that price point. Its junk for gaming but will work to get a system back up and running for web surfing and basic tasks.

    To be honest if you wanted one at that price try your luck on e-bay.
    If you wanted it to be brand new then.
    AM3+ board from Asrock comes in at £35.00
    AMD Athlon II X2 270 3.4GHz AM3 2MB 65W £37.90.

    Total=72.90

    This processor is for basic tasks only. http://www.dabs.com/products/amd-sempron-145-2-8ghz-1mb-am3-45w-74NJ.html?q=sempron&src=16 don't expect to do any gaming with it. At all

    The top one seems okay, the bottom is a bit over what I wanted to spend but the top one is faster too.
    I'll do more research but thank you for your reply :)
  8. I'd suggest you save up some more money!
  9. Try bidding on this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AMD-Phenom-II-x4-840-CPU-/310700618895?pt=UK_Computing_CPUs_Processors&hash=item485733348f
    or new £40 gets an Athlon II x 2 £50 gets Athlon II X3 £60 Gets Phenom II x 4 every extra £10 is well worth it.
  10. Okay, how about this:
    http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1730080/amd-athlon-270-asrock-m3a785gxh-128m.html

    Will those things like each other or will they fail?
  11. Are you getting a graphics card? If not get a FM2 board and an APU. The 3 items will work together but its not more than 2-5 £s cheaper than new from Ebuyer.co.uk or similar.
