£300 for all of that? You can't get a mobo, RAM and CPU for that amount on AM2. :(

Fix. ;)

OK that was a over statement. :( And prices have really dropped recently :eek:

I will put some more effort into this after a drink...

OK, got one.

Motherboards good, keep that. RAM, you really want to start looking at 2GB especially with Vista around the corner, and Beta 2 for public trial. Now the CPU, dual core is the future. With K8L being released sometime in the future and being able to be dropped into the PC with a BIOS flash, go for that on release.

oK Thanks... Dual core is abit expensive for me, as im a teenager without a job! But yeah, I'll save for it when vista comes out. Lets hope AM2 socket is top socket till then, and i dont have to replace the Mobo!

They are good, (better than AMD's dual core chips right now) but they will be out of your price range. When they come out, the AMD 3000 CPU will drop by about £5 to £10.
