    I have MSI 770 G45 MB (AM3) with Athlon II X2 250.
    Considering upgrade. For about £100 i could get a Phenom II X4 965
    Black Edition or Phenom II X6 1045T or.....

    For general use, any ideas/suggestions?

    I’ve got a Gigabyte 880 one with Athlon II X2 250 as well. It´s not bad processor specially for general use as you say. My ram is 8Gb DDR3 1333. However run at 1066 because of processor speed restriction but I’ve changed bios specs to 1333 and it works perfectly . Phenom works at 1333 directly.
    In a similar situation as you my option was an upgrade to a 120 Gb ssd and I`m really satisfied of the general improving.
