This would be pretty decent, while keeping to the £600 budget.

Intel Pentium G620 - £45.46
4GB Corsair DDR3 1333Mhz - £18.64
Asus P8Z68-V LX - £76.37
Seagate Barracuda 500GB - £65.00
HIS IceQ X HD 6950 2GB - £194.99
Coolermaster Elite 430 - £39.65
Be Quiet Pure Power 530W - £44.95
Philips E-line 21.5'' Monitor - £102.20
Samsung DVD Burner - £12.99

Total - £600.25 on

The CPU there may seem quite weak but you actually get similar performance to an FX-4100 or FX-8120 in games for the moment and then you could upgrade to an Ivy Bridge i5 in a few months if you want. You can even overclock it since this has a Z68 board.

EDIT: Just to add as well, my friend has that monitor and it looks amazing. I would highly recommend it.
