+1 (Your description is quite vague though, any type of desktop?)

generalised custom build desktop spec I recommend:

SandyBridge i5 or more
amd 5770 (great gfx card easy overclockable, plays latest games and is cheap it IS however a revision old but hey it's good)
get a expandable motherboard this should be roughly your most expensive component
get a quality built psu to basically protect investment...
Corsair/Seasonic/Antec (look for 80PLUS cert)

if you have any way of sourcing parts from the USA you can get some great hardware deals
(ie relative/friend brings home graphics card @£15 less etc) this while not much of a discount will still add up.

Fan cool too, water cooling while good isn't worth it, one fault and "bam" system down and insurance up.
