    It's a good CPU which will be a fair bit quicker than your current and should overclock to 3Gig with little effort if you know what you are doing. Don't pay £114 for it thought, pay £105.70........here:

    And I would opt for another motherboard, if your on a budget, try this one:

    It's a good all rounder with decent overclocking options. Theere is a review of the board here:

    Geek, how much you got to spend on the Graphics card, I am thinking of E baying my 7900GTO, it's actually a GTX as it clocks beyond GTX speeds and has the same core but it aint gonna be cheap! (although cheaper than a new current midranged card).
