here are links to my build it is all from ebuyer

Case: Casecom Black Mid Tower Case £18.88

Ram: OCZ 2GB (2x1GB) DDR3 1333Mhz £47.80

From over here (USA) it is difficult to tell what you can get (and pricing)

The build looks compatible, to me ... X2 cores gonna be enough ??

You did not mention your various uses/priorities/titles
