    you might want to say if he wants a TFT or CRT, speakers? mouse? keyboard? OS? MS Office etc?

    What's he using the PC for?

    That will help people to understand if on board sound and graphics can be used

    I was thinking almost exactly the same thing:

    Mobile Barton 2400+/2500+ (Brilliant for overclocking, I recommend the 2400+ due to the lower voltage) FromCPUCity £62.39

    NF7-S (Good for overclocking as well) From
    CPUCity £62.28

    2x512mb Crucial RAM (Reliable, and at a decent price) From Crucial themselves £119.58, or the slightly more expensive, but still good value, Ballistix RAM for more performance

    120gb Seagate Barracuda (Reliable with a five year warranty) From Komplett £57.50

    Radeon 9800 Pro - Komplett do a cheap one £139

    Surely if you've accepted the offer of building a PC for someone you'd have the necessary skills in researching a hardware specification for 'the friend'. You should always have the technical know-how before attempting this.

    Otherwise, for budget whilst having good performance go for what Trig said and find the best prices possible.
