    Please could you recommend me a price\performance balance cpu upgrade?

    I have a GA-K8N51GMF-9 motherboard with an Athlon 3200+ processor and 2GB ram and I am thinking of upgrading the processor for a speed jump, could anyone recommend me a processor around £50-60 please?

    This is the compatbility list for my motherboard and I was thinking buying this

    I assume I will probably need to get a fan as well (not more than £20?

    Thank you
