I was looking to buy a processor and two one gig ram cards so my budget is about £200. Are you also in England?

Cpu: KustomPCs.co.uk - Intel Core 2 DUO E8400 775 3.0Ghz CPU 45nm if you can't afford get this KustomPCs.co.uk - Intel Pentium Dual Core E2200 775 2.2Ghz CPU
Ram: KustomPCs.co.uk - G.Skill 4Gb PQ DDRII PC8000 or KustomPCs.co.uk - Team Elite 2Gb DDR2-PC6400 these plus your current sticks dependent on what version of vista your running
That should give you a massive general performance boost

Yeah counterstrike source is a game and I am in essex whilst most the people on here are yanks. You could do with a new motherboard that ones fairly limitting but that will take half your budget

Nice one for the help, do I only have to replace the old processor with the new one and it will work fine?

It depends you haven't actually told me much about your computer so far is it a prebuilt desktop (dell, hp, fujitsu blah blah) or did you build it yourself or get a third party to build it for you?
