Greetings folks!

Looking for a bit of help finishing the build on my first computer.

Parts I already have are the following:

GPU: GV-N560OC-1GI - 1GB Gigabyte GTX 560Ti OC, 40nm, 4000MHz GDDR5, GPU 900MHz, Shader 1800MHz, 384 Cores, DVI/ mHDMI

PSU: Standard 600w Corsair

HDD/SSD Already have those sorted.

Now is where I need some help, I have around £250-300 to spend on a new motherboard (currently using a Abit I-45C 775 socket board, old yes!) and an Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU E2200 @ 2.20GHz with 4GB of Kingston Ram (2x2GB sticks)

Here is the link to CPU I'm most likely going to be getting unless advice provokes me to buy something else:

http://www.scan.co.uk/products/intel-core-i5-2400-s1155...

So yea, something around that level to increase my gaming/ all round performance.

So Ram, Motherboard and anew CPU, Much appreciation to anyone that helps I'm in a bit of a pickle sorting it myself.

Thanks again Lee ;)

i cant access the page for some reason but yes that is a nice processor. in USD the 2500k is only 30 more dollars though so i would say try to squeeze that into your budget. any ddr3 1333 or 1600 will do and its all dirt cheap. as for motherboards this is an awesome motherboard for the price, though im not sure you will be able to get it where you are located because like a said, i cant get to the site you are purchasing parts from http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
