I was going to build a quality system with some low end parts and some high end parts for upgrades.
Is this chip good value for money and would it work in an AM3+ motherboard?
AMD Athlon 620

This CPU will only work in an AM2 socket, not an AM3.

Then can somebody recommend me a processor for a £250 budget rig?

Either platform

This would be easier if you list out the components that you need first.

Athlon II X3 or Phenom II X4 955BE.

One more thing.
I have an eMachines 3240. For an old PC the motherboard looks pretty modern. What's the upgrade possibilities with this machine?

Intel GMA 900
Intel Pentium 42.66gz
4 SATA ports
What looks like a PCIe port. It's black and ha a little thing sticking out at the end

Would it accept something like a Core 2 Quad config or a GFX card?

You won't fit any core 2 cpus in a pentium cause they use a different socket. It could probably handle some older graphics cards like nvidia 7xxx series, not sure though without knowing the mobo

Ok, what about this:
Asus P5e3
Intel Q6600 G0
