What's the purpose of the PC? You won't get a whole hell of a lot with 550, but I suppose it'll get something decent.

I put this list together a while back for a mate. Comes to 580 including a keyboard and mouse. If you look around on the web you might get the parts cheaper though. Try checking Pixmania (I got some good deals there on my build a couple of years back). Amazon. Scan. Maybe even EBay.

Anyway here is the link to the thread I made.
Build For A Friend.

Hope it helps
