£600 Norm/Gaming use PC

I am in DESPERATE NEED of purchasing parts for my custom built PC. My budget will be £600. The parts will be bought today. (most probably) I will be using this for School work, media and slight gaming - Combat arms. Not Crysis, not warhead, not GTA4 - none of those high demanding games. I will NOT be overclocking ANYTHING because I have no experience with it so everything that will be bought won't be upgraded. My monitor resolution will be 1440x900 or 1600x1200. I live in the UK so purchasing parts overseas in not an option. I do NOT require - keyboard, mouse, speakers, OS. Here are the parts I have already chosen:
