yeah heres what i would build
intel c2d e6420-http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/CPUs+%2F+Processors/Intel/Core+2+Duo/Intel+Core+2+Duo+E6420+Retail?productId=26798
asus p5b-e http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=26511
corsair twin xms2 ddr2 800mhz -http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Memory/DDR2/DDR2+800+%28PC6400%29/Corsair+Twinx+XMS2+PC-6400+DHX+%282+x+1GB%29+?productId=27054
8600-256mb http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=26918
320gb seagate baracuda http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=23684
dvd burner http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=26881
power supply - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=27045
+ the case comes to just short of 550 , slightly over the 500 but if you dont get the antec 900 it would be cheaper , also you could upgrade to an e6600 making the cost around your orig 580 budget ,

see what other people say as well

I forgot to mention i can actually purchase all of these components through my dads company so can claim back the v.a.t. so with that upgrade it would all come to roughly just under 500. So i have a budget of 500 excluding vat

that rig is very similar to a build i have already looked at on ebuyer but wouldnt it be better putting an amd 64 4600+ in there than the intel. Only say this cos most ppl tell me AMDs are faster....always been with intel myself so i wouldnt know.
