P4 2.8Ghz nortwood upgrade to ???

I have a P4 2.8ghz uni core (northwood) and use the pc for Virtaul Machines running different OS'es, win2008 is killing it now so I now need to upgrade the pc components PSU/MB/CPU/RAM/VGA I don't play games, I just need a some advice on the which components to use I have about £230 UK pounds for the lot.

I wish to overclock the cpu to get the most out when using VM's I'm an IT guy studying windows 2008 domains etc..

A Motherboard with built in VGA would save me some money.

my system has a ATX v1.2 240W PSU i take it I do need to upgrade that as well?

I have been looking at E6500/E2180 but get lost in reading to any reviews.
