It costs about the same as components and OS to buy a system, it is more that you can choose what suits you best.

The pre-built OCUK system for £350 recently posted is a good deal. What parts do you have already (if any), will the system be used for gaming, do you care about a good looking case, do you want an OS for the £400? All these are major factors in choosing the best way to spend the cash. For instance the best full base I can come up with for gaming at that price would be:

This C2D Package(180):

this GPU (135)

ebuyer.com/pro…969

this case / PSU (60)

ebuyer.com/pro…101

This DVD (15)

ebuyer.com/pro…014

and this HDD(37):

overclockers.co.uk/sho…at=

Total - £427

You could save £45 and go for this 4870 512MB if necessary too:
