I know you said you were looking to spend around £120, but if I were in your
position I'd spend the extra £25 for http://www.ebuyer.com/product/237052

You say the main reason for an upgrade is to improve video rendering. Whilst
I've got no experience with Kino I suspect it uses ffmpeg or mencoder to do
the actual video rendering. Both of these are able to utilise multiple cores
and as such you'll notice a bigger difference using a slower quad core than
a faster single or dual core processor. The motherboard in that bundle also
has radeon 3000 integrated graphics, which, according to a previous reply,
is supported by the proprietary drivers so performance should be decent.
