Not sure, I can check, but in the mean time if it is to expensive you might need to get a single core CPU:
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice 90nm:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal..._939_cpus.html

I will total it all up hold on

Ok if you keep the dual core CPU which I recommend you do it is a little over your budget at £624.50. If you get the single core CPU it totals to £523.50.

You may want to look into the advantages of a Dual Core Processor.

well you really dont have to get the amd 64 3500 or all those, my brother is running a amd 64 3000 venice 939 @ 2.8ghz and its whooping up on all of those lol. even the fx55 and almost with the fx57 which is about 800-1000 bucks! and yes he paid 115 for the venice 3000, so u may want to look in to overclocking
