Assuming he doesn't need a mouse or keyboard i'd suggest going the AMD APU route:

MICROSOFT Windows Home Premium 7 SP1 64-bit EN 1pk - OEM [GFC-02050]
19" Acer S191HQLGb Widescreen LED Monitor - Black
ARIANET Stealth Black Midi Tower Case
500W OCZ CoreXStream 80PLUS Power Supply
AMD A8-3870K 3.00GHz Accelerated Processor Unit (Socket FM1) - Retail w/ 1 FREE Game! **£10 AMD Cashback!**
ASUS F1A75-M AMD Hudson D3 (Socket FM1) DDR3 PCI-Express Micro-ATX Motherboard
GeiL Black Dragon (RED LEDs) 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-15000C9 1866MHz Dual Channel Kit (GB38GB1866C9ADC)

Final Price with P&P and VAT: £397.92 but as you get a £10 cashback for the cpu £387.92

If you could increase the budget to £500 we may be able to fit in an intel cpu with discrete graphics.

Well, it would be better to go the Intel+discrete graphics if you have enough headroom. And if the OP is going for the APU route, he'd better grab the
Trinity ones which are coming out this Q4.
