    MonsterMunch has come up with an excellent budget conroe rig for about 600 quid in another thread... The one with the X2 7900GT in the title I think...

    The only things I'd be tempted to change is probably to go for GSkill Ram on special offer which will save you ~£20 and possibly change the DVDRW for the NEC 3550 which does everything apart from the LabelFlash technology (and that is probably a bit of a gimmick) and it will save you another £5 or so. Actually since you don't need a hard drive then it is almost bang on your budget :)
