I presume by the X1800 this is going to be a mainly gaming rig?
When do you see your next upgrade after this one?

hmm for single core you could get the 3700+ or if you can find optys either the 148 or 150

but if you want Dual core the 4400+ or the opty 170 //175

please post you're budget

With the X1800XT costing £279.95 from the site you're using, your only left with £70.05/$120 (USD). But the mobo costs you £129.95; so you need more before we can help really. But unless you're really just trying to go top of the line, their is no real reason for gaming to get anything more than a AMD64 Athlon 3700+. I currently use an AMD64 3200+ Venice and run all my games with the highest resolution that doesn't look funny, and the highest graphics without lag (and I'm only using a 6600GT with a Shadow Card). Im running HL2:CSS, BF:2, and NFS:MW. If the £350 is JUST for the CPU then go with a AMD Opteron 175 Denmark 1GHz FSB 2MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Dual Core Processor (if you're not worried about spending all the money.)
