    Windows 7 rc?

    Use it till next year then grab an oem version, from some of the reviews its better than vista and free for a year (ish)?

    There's lots of configurations which will do the job... heck, even an dual-core atom/ion build will technically get the job done. What kind of headroom do you need?

    Re: burrellhead build

    Well with that budget i'd concentrate on low noise, small and good performance (not amazing).

    Enermax Modu82+ 425w ~£55
    Asus 760G Asus M3A76-C ~£50
    4GB PC6400 ~£40
    AMD X3 720 BE ~£105
    Antec P180 mini ~£55
    Western Digital 640GB AAKS ~£50
    LG Blu Ray/ HD DVD ~£70
    ATi 4770 or Nvidia 250 <&#163;100
    Nice cooler like Scythe Ninja II ~&#163;30

    Should come in less than &#163;550

    I run something fairly similar and it's lovely and quiet (next to silent).

    Build

    From Scan

    Phenom II X4 955 ~ &#163;183

    http://www.scan.co.uk/TodayOnly/Index.aspx

    HD4870 1gb ~ &#163;137

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/1GB-X...VI-I-HDTV-HDCP

    1TB Samsung hard drive ~ &#163;64

    http://www.scan.co.uk/TodayOnly/Index.aspx

    4gb DDR2 ~ &#163;36

    http://www.scan.co.uk/TodayOnly/Index.aspx

    Gigabyte GA-MA770-UD3 motherboard ~&#163;57

    http://www.scan.co.uk/TodayOnly/Index.aspx

    Enermax 525w modular ~ &#163;70

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/525W-...uard-SafeGuard

    This comes to around &#163;550 including free postage from Scan.

    From Ebuyer

    You can go for the following soundcard and speakers:

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/149266

    http://www.ebuyer.com/search?q=aego&x=0&y=0

    The Antec 300 is a good case too:

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/143854

    This will come to around &#163;220. This leaves you around &#163;30 for a keyboard and mouse.
