Here's a build just to give you an idea, but ideally you should come back like a week before you buy as there might be better and cheaper alternatives by then.

Intel Core i5 750 £149.67
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Intel-Core-i5-750-Quad-C...(Lynnfield)-8M-Cache-LGA1156-CPU-Retail

Biostar TP55, Intel P55 Express £83.12
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Biostar-TP55-Intel-P55-E...(x16)-DDR3-1866-(OC)-SATA-3Gb-s-SATA-RAID-ATX

550W Plus Antec Basiq Power PSU £52.89
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/550W-Plus-Antec-Basiq-Po...

OCZ 4GB DDR3 1600MHz Platinum i5 Memory Kit 1.65V CL7 £84.99

Seagate ST3500418AS 500GB SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache £36.22
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/158860

LG GH22NS40 22X SATA Black Bare Drive £15.99

Total = £499.92

I left the GPU out since you want the 5850, and also the CPU heatsink as there's not much to choose from at this stage. scan offers free delivery I think if you sign up to the "hexus" forums.

The only thing i cant see a point in is buying a chipset that only runs with ddr3, but then can only run it in dual channel. It just seems a bit pointless to me, because ddr3 is meant for tri channel.]

Sorry my mistake, its dual channel kits of ddr3, for some reason i thought they were both the same. Im awake now, I think. lol :lol:
