when you say other bits do you mean monitor etc etc?

have you got an operating system?

Going AMD will save you a little money, an XP2000 will do more than you need it to. If you're transferring music spend a little more than usual on a good sound card, you should be able to get a more specialist one fairly cheap. Also 512MB DDR RAM should keep any editing going smoothly. I assume all the other applications you run aren't too heavy on reseources, so you should be ok with the spec for them.

Is Software counted in the £500 for the tower, if not then you'll want to put at least £100 aside for a new operating system if you're upgrading tnat too.

Consider building your own. It will work out cheaper and possibly with better specs and you will also gain experience.

Find out if there is a GOOD local shop and let them build you a machine

I'd go with Andsome's advice if you don't want to build your own, a local shop will help you get exactly what you need and you know you'll be able to get in touch if you need to.
