Additional Comments:

I posted here before, and this was the build that screwyskqril came up with.

Xenta Black Mid Tower Case £17.99
120mm Black Case Fan - 4 pin connector £2.07
ASRock H61M-VS Socket 1155 VGA 5.1 Channel Audio mATX Motherboard £41.28
Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz Memory Kit Unbuffered CL9 £19.91
Corsair 430W V2 CX Series PSU £34.50
Intel Core i5 2400 3.1GHz Socket LGA 1155 6MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor £148.06 (136) hardware saints
PowerColor HD 6850 PCS+ 1GB GDDR5 DVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Graphics Card £107.99



However, i hardly buy new computers and i want to be able to use this cheap system for 4-5 years. So in a few years i would like to enhance performance is i need to via overclocking, which the 2400k isnt good for in the build above.

So if it's possible to go for a overclockable 2500k within budget i will go for that build.
