Thanks for the reply
I looked at the ASRock card, but apparently it doesn't accept Wolfdales, which were pretty cheap - what happened to the days when socket types accepted any of type of CPU named the same?
I'm looking into an AMD Athlon X2 250 at the moment, can get that and a suitable mobo for under £100. They still any good? It's not really for a high performance machine, just to replace the dead mobo I have already (Some old AMD Socket A thing)
I don't want to be buying more than I need really - found a cheap 9600GT PCI-E card for £40 which is fine, but I'd rather keep the original hard disk, soundcard and wifi card
