Oh, my mistake on not reading that it was DDR. Well as aetherh4cker has suggested, check CPU-Z and take an SS of it so that we can see the specs. Please and thank you.

Aria.co.uk is a good place to order parts in Europe, specifically the United Kingdom, as is obvious from the domain.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ 2.2GHz Socket AM2 Processor
MSI K9N nForce 550 Socket AM2 ATX Motherboard
OCZ 2GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) RAM
OCZ 600W Power Supply
NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI-Express Graphics Card
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE

I figured after all that, you'll probably need a new power supply, too. And the Sound Blaster Audigy SE is no XFi, but in all honesty, any good sound card that is not integrated will take a lot of pressure from your CPU. These parts total about 280 or 400, inclusive of VAT.

Download Cpu-Z 1.41 - A freeware program that provides some information about your CPU - Softpedia

Download that, and run the program. It'll show all your system specifications.
