Case: Cooler Master Centurion 5 ~ $50
PSU: Antec True Power 2 550W ~$80
Motherboard: ASUS P5B ~$150
CPU: Intel Core 2 E6600 ~$320
Ram: GSKILL 2X1GB DDR2 800 ~$240
GPU: EVGA 7950GT ~$300

This is a pretty bad *** system you can upgrade the case and what not to make even better all prices are in US should be around your budget. got all prices from newegg

That would come out to about 750. Drop down to a E6300 and you should be close. I looked at Misco.co.uk and similar parts come to about that amount but I don't know of any good UK sites.

Yep, anyone who says AMD is better than Intel at this point in time is wrong. Core 2 duo's are the best around
