Hi.

I have a Carillon audio PC which is about 4 years old. It is a Pentium 3.2gHz with 2GB of RAM.
I would like to get a new mother board, cpu and RAM.
My budget is £170 tops!
I'm considering these so far:-

Motherboards

ASRock 4Core1333 Glan/M £34.49 inc p&p

or

Gigabyte GA-G33M-S2 £54.55 inc p&p

CPU

Intel E2160 1.8 Core 2 Duo £53.69 inc p&p

or

Intel E4500 2.2 Core 2 Duo £69.78 inc p&p

Memory

4GB DDR2 800 mhz RAM 2x2GB £42.98 inc p&p

My old mobo was an ASRock which has been rock solid with Cubase SX3.1 so am wondering if it would be best to stick with ASRock? I'm also thinking the ASRock might integrate with my other stuff better?

What would you advise within my £170 budget?

Many Thanks
