The Phenom X2 550BE would be a good choice. But there's the Phenom II 555BE coming around the corner. But it seems you like to use a lot of application and a quad-core would be more ideal. I see you can't go wrong with any of them.

I've updated my bios for now and will stick with my motherboard until the near future when the new bulldozer chips are out.
I have about Â£120 to spend, but the lower the better as theres a few other bits I wouldn't mind and I'm on a tight budget. So still open to suggestions and from scan, ebuyer if possible. Also a HSF as well please, looking for a small increase in game performance but also in general windows use.
Many Thanks all those guru's out there!
