can't help with the desk, but here's an initial idea:

ASRock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3 motherboard
8 GB DDR3-1600
60 or 120 GB SSD
DVD burner
Case of your choice
HD 6950 2 GB or GTX 570
620-650W PSU from Antec, XFX, Seasonic, PC Power & Cooling, or Corsair
1920x1080 monitor from Acer
inexpensive keyboard & mouse (PS2 keyboard, USB mouse -- wired is cheaper), inexpensive 2.1 speaker set.

should be around 1000-1100 pounds, leaving plenty for windows and a nice desk,

For websites:
all are good sites so shop around for prices mate, don't forget Amazon can sometimes be useful too, although not always cheapest
and I don't reckon you'll have much advice on the desk, maybe argos/ local paper is your best bet there, I'd just make one hehe

I know man, I thought I'd post some sites for you so you can maybe find the items cheaper, a lot of our members are U.S. so not familiar with U.K. sites
I'll leave system suggestions to others as I'm at work and cant surf too much on my phone :-)
Although Squirrels suggested build is a damn good one, I wouldn't change anything there
