How about this?

Well I've decided to basically build another computer since the one I'm using now has started getting very slow even doing simple processes. I'll be using it mostly for general browsing/watching films and sometimes playing games, so an amazing graphics card isn't that important however a decent CPU/motherboard is. This is what I've selected so far and just wanted a few people to chime in and check if this will run smoothly or if I should change some parts. Also I've pretty much settled on the intel i5 760 as the processor after a lot of reading around. All of it is off ebuyer since I live in the UK.

PALIT 9800GT Green Edition 1GB GDDR3 VGA DVI HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card

Intel i5 760 2.8GHz Socket 1156 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor

Antec 902 Nine Hundred Two Black ATX Case - No PSU

Corsair CWCH50-1 Cooling Hydro Series H50 High-performance CPU Cooler supports LGA1156 LGA775 LGA1366 AM2 and AM3 processors

Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz/PC3-12800 XMS3 i5 Memory Kit CL9(9-9-9-24) 1.65V

Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD3 P55 Socket 1156 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard

Corsair 750W TX PSU - 120mm Fan, 80+% Efficiency, Single +12V Rail

I already have a monitor/speakers/mouse/keyboard so I think that's all I need. The total of that comes to £630 and that's probably the most I want to spend.
