why dont you build it yourself? much easier than you would think, and your budget is plenty for a pretty beefy system
#2
a quick look on ebuyer shows u could build:

Athlon Black Edition x2 2.7ghz
4gb 800mhz ram
Ati 4770 512mb ddr5 graphics
500gb hard drive
dvd-rw
samsung 23inch monitor
coolermaster case

all for £470 delivered

i remember back in the days of the 486 and pentiums period i was into building & customising my own - back then there was a big saving to build your own but as time went on it became cheaper to buy off the shelf - also i had a bad experience once with a faulty part (took me forever to work which part was faulty, as i had to test each component) lot of hair tearing involved.

there are definately savings to be made just now by building yourself. its also difficult to find a system which ticks exactly all your boxes. its much easier if you build

one of the deals i'm interested in is the Dell vostro 220

E8400 (3ghz)
22" LCD
4gb ram
500gb hard disk
ATI 256mb HD 3450 graphics card

Unlikely on a vostro, but I can't say for certain.
