Hey there so i'm going overseas and going to get some parts for my computer
I currently need a Motherboard new CPU and new Ram as my current CPU is outdated same with its DDR2 memory, I need to upgrade because my GTX 460 is bottle necking with the CPU.

Here are the 2 upgrade suggestions.  

1. AMD UPGRADE

ASUS M4A87TD DDR3 = 105 NZD
AMD ATHLON X3 450 3.2 GHz = 95NZD
GENERIC 4 GB ( 2GB X 2 ) DDR3 RAM = 39NZD
 
Total = 243 NZD

2. INTEL UPGRADE

ASUS P5P41T/USB3  = 119 NZD
INTEL PENTIUM DUEL CORE E600 = 93 NZD
GENERIC 4 GB ( 2GB X 2 ) DDR3 RAM = 39NZD

Total =  251 NZD

Which of the builds would you recommend? And would you have some build ideas that would fit the price?

Cheers
