Motherboard - ASUS P5B
CPU - Intel Dual-Core E2140
RAM - OCZ 2GB DDR2-800
Graphics - Point of View 8800GTS 320MB
Power Supply - Antec Truepower Trio 550w
Hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda 250GB 7200.10 16MB Cache
Optical Drive - Sony NEC Optiarc DVD Burner

Total comes to 482.16 including VAT. If you want to save some money, go with:
EVGA 590SLI
AMD Athlon X2 4000+
Then the total would be 478.97 including VAT.

All you have to do now, is pick a case.

Well that's only the tower. No monitor, mouse, keyboard, or OS. I was assuming you have these already.

The CPU is retail, so it has a CPU fan and cooler included. If you're talking about case fans, that's where you have to pick a case.

Unless you have a case already you would need a case with that. If you don't have any computer components, you would also need keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers. The cases should come with all the fans/wires/buttons/etc...

The motherboard comes with the IDE cables/screws/backplate/the rest

The power supply should come with the wall plug and all the connectors for the computer hardware.

Basically if you just buy what's listed above you should have all the accessories required to connect it together.
