What would be a suitable replacement for a Athlon 2500+ Cpu. I've looked online but there's not much info so i've come to the masters.

P.S. I live Australia so i'll be buying from MSY here's a parts list to help shorten your search. http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/PARTS.pdf
:)  :) 
Thank you for any help.

The best you can do is look at some used CPUs. The athlon 2500+ is a barton core with 333mhz systembus (fsb) so any socket A/462 CPU with that fsb should be compatible with your motherboard.

You would just like to change the CPU or the whole system? And from the PDF there are many fields marked in yellow. What do they mean? Are they the parts that you are interested in or are they the parts who's prices were updated by MSY!

Please mention your whole config that you already have. Model name, ratings and all. Its a very old processor. It would be difficult to find a replacement.

That's a lot more than we needed. If you have the budget, go for the complete upgrade rather than just CPU. A Core i5 rig would do the trick, or are you interested in AMD?

AMD 955BE.
Biostar TA790GXB A3+.
GSkill 1600MHz RAM CL7 RAM's.
Add the good card and a good PSU to that.
These are the basic changes i can suggest as of now.
I have no idea what your budget is and the prices in Australia. If you can mention you budget then maybe we can check out some online Australian stores and give you a PC specification.

No new processor is going to fit in your really old motherboard, you may be able to find a faster Athlon XP that is compatible, but you'll still be unable to play most new games because single core just doesn't cut it any more. It's time to get a new motherboard/cpu/ram if you want to upgrade. Than since your current video card using the out dated AGP interface, it won't be compatible with a new motherboard and you'll be needing a new video card as well.
