After discovering that I only had 1.5 instead of 2GB of RAM I ordered an upgrade which should help things along a bit.

However, I'm also looking into improving the processing power. I currently have a Duron processor and according to the motherboard manual, I can install anything up to an "Athlon XP 3200+". I looked around various online retailers (ebuyer etc.) but none seem to do Athlon XP CPUs anymore but there are quite a few on ebay, one of them as high as 100 quid "buy now" but around 40-50 seems to be the average.
How much should a CPU of that type cost?

Any tips gratefully received.

I currently don't want to upgrade my motherboard as it would mean I'd need all kinds of new things (hard drives, probably RAM etc.), too. If 50 quid or so would give me enough oomph to last another year or so, I'd be happy. The current motherboard only has a Socket A.
