I came up with this build yesterday for a friend on a £500 budget. The build doesn't include a case, and has 4GB RAM. For the extra £100 id recommend obviously buying a case (around £50 or less mark - mid-tower ATX) 1TB HDD, and swap the motherboard for the ASRock Extreme3 Gen3. You might even be able to squeeze in 8GB RAM instead of 4GB.

i5-2500k £160
Corsair Memory XMS3 Classic 4GB DDR3 1600 MHz £23
Coolermaster Hyper TX3 CPU Cooler £15
Corsair Builder Series 500W Power Supply £45
MSI 1GB GeForce GTX 560 Ti £177
Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB £31 (1TB version is £43)

£526 (with 500GB HDD without case)
Could easily fit all these parts in under £500 buying from "Today Only" offers.
