    Hi,
    I plan to change my mobo pretty soon and get a AMD dual-core,the mobo is a ASUS A8N-VM CSM-EAYGZ which i have been told is very good, any recommendations as to what size chip and cost?, i have £300 to splash on one.

    Any advice welcome.

    For that much I'd go with the amd64 4400+ dualcore, due to the fact that it has 1mb of cache for each processor while the 4600+ only has 512kb for each processor, the extra does make a difference in how the processor will perform. It should be ~270 pounds without a VAT tax (so with it, it'd be about 310 or so, assuming my math and a ~15% vat isn't way out there)

    It's been a while since I've visited england.
