Ok here's what I got:

Processor:

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice 1GHz HT 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939 $117

Motherboard:

ASUS A8N5X Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD $75

Ram:

CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) DDR400 $72

Case:

Rosewill TU-155 Steel ATX Mid Tower with 400 watt PSU $55

That's a total of $319 U.S. But it would be best to get the X2 dual core.

Lol.. except the pound is most valued currency in the world and has almost a 2:1 margin over the dollar:

Live mid-market rates as of 2006.04.17 14:28:02 UTC.
300.00 GBP = 531.021 USD
