OK a gold star to anyone who can beat any of these prices!
I have kind of sorted out what parts I want now, I used to be up to date with computers but havn't touched them for 2 years so am a bit rusty.Motherboard picked:
Needs to have 2x PCI-E slots, at 16x
Preferably 4 Slots for RAM, taking up to 800MHz PC6400Abit AW9D-MAX Intel 975X (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard (MB-108-AB)
Price: £158.61 Overclockers

800Mhz PC6400 DDR2. Would like to buy just 1GB now but it works out cheaper if I just buy 2x1GB sticks if you get me (Wierd Logic)
I am not to bothered about make etc, but the follwing product looks about the cheapest I can find.GeIL 2GB (2x1GB) PC6400 800MHz Ultra Low Latency DDR2 Dual Channel Kit (GX22GB6400UDC) (MY-058-GL)
I also looked around at Scan.co.uk, but no great prices from what I could see.
These items can be OEM if price dictates, although processor might be best if it came with heatsink/fan as my current fan might not be up to the task.
Microdirect offer 3% Quidco and seem to be cheapest overall, but are out of stock of the Motherboard :(
Also if you can find a better Processor/Motherboard for the money please post it up, because I can be swayed as I literally don't know what I am doing here haha.I am looking to spend around £350 for CPU/Motherboard
Looks like I am stuck at around £150+ for the RAM but I would really like to go cheaper in this area if it is even possible!
Graphics card I got for this lot to work with is this...Leadtek GeForce 7950 GX2 1024MB GDDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-086-LT)
It's the bottom one.
Thanks people, hope you can help, and the gaunlet has been laid!...
