Default Help With Parts for new PC

Hey all,

My friend wants some help picking out some parts for a PC, he wants to use the PC for World of Warcraft, multimedia and schoolwork.

He has 330 pounds which is 620 USD and 690 CAD..

He already has a monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers and Windows XP..

The only real requirements set by him is that he wants an AMD Dual Core CPU, if thats possible to fit into the price range..

Bearing in mind he lives in the UK, he wants people to list him items from places such as www.misco.co.uk www.savastore.com www.dabs.com and other places that ship to the UK.

Could people list there PC advice?

Thanks

An X2 3800+ would fit that budget, plus 2 gb of ram. For gfx, I'm not sure maybe a 7600GT?
