Mybe something like this one from Gigabyte. But I am really not 100% sure on what to buy in your price range though. http://www.komplett.co.uk/k/ki.asp?sku=324364

Firstly, buy this instead. Don't be fooled by the spec, it's superior to a Pentium D. http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=430631 OcUK charge about £135 for it, in case you were wondering. So about £10 more.

And I know this is a bit (£10-ish) over your £80 budget, but this looks pretty good: hhttp://www.scan.co.uk/Products/ProductInfo.asp?WebProductID=433274 OcUK don't sell that one. They sell it's little bro (ie the non-Pro) though, for about £85. I'd go for the Pro (ie the one I linked to) because it can take more drives. And...well, look at my sig and you'll see why. :)

I can't see a reason why you have to order from them. Scan is far superior IMO. Although I do like the new OcUK layout...

The same one, the ABIT AB9 Pro.

You do know that the 2.4GHz E6600 costs about £210, right?
