I would also go for the 2100 or a Phenom II x4.

If you use a lot of applications that can utilize 4 cores, then I'd recommend going for the the PII.
If it's generally more based on the efficiency of each core, then the i3-2100 will be better suited.
Depends on the price as well, of course.

Any chance you could wait a month ? Llano will be out by then. Quadcore with decent graphics for your needs, I belive.

This seems a sensible solution

So it seems like i have a vague list now:

CPU - AMD II X2 250
RAM - 4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHZ (Does that work with the CPU?)
Mobo - Undecided, any suggestions welcome.
HD - Samsung F3 1TB
GFX - Somewhere around the £35 mark, looks like a cheap 6 series... recommendations?
Cooling - Artic cooling freezer 7 pro
PSU - Corsair 500W CX
DVD - Sony Optiarc AD-7260B
Case - I love the mini P180 but cant seem to find it anywhere for anything vaguely affordable. Any suggestions for a good case?

If you insist on not waiting on AMD's Llano arriving in the start of June, then this:


PSU:Antec EarthWatts Green EA 380D -£32 (exclusive VAT) In general it's a better PSU (80+ Bronze efficiency). 500W is far overkill anyway. You will in theory only need 200W at most.

RAM: I recommend Kingston Hyper (Blu) if you can find them cheaper. However, the Vengeance kit will fit just fine and are decent too.

GPU: Radeon HD 5450 1GB - £29.98 Ex VAT

Can't handle the rest ...

Thermaltake V3. Best cheap chase there is by a long shot.
