Ok I want to upgrade my CPU soon but can't affored to do the whole motherboard + CPU + ram thing so I want to keep what I have and just do it all at a later date
I currently have a Asus Striker Extreme with a E6300 OC'ed to 2.3GHz but I don't know what I should go for thats good but cheap as im doing the GPU at the same time (getting a GTX275) I have looked at the Q8200 as its only £100 is this a good CPU and will it OC ok??

The Q8200 is a decent CPU and will be a big improvement over your E6300 but it won't overclock that well thanks to its low multiplier.
