Is the budget just for the tower and does it include an operating system? Please be aware that hard-drive prices are going through the roof due to the flooding in Asia.

CPU: i5 2500K. £161.21 LN37506

Mobo: GA-Z68A-DS3 - £74.02 LN40654

RAM: 4gb 1600mhz DDR3 - £24.48 LN37493

HDD: 1 x 500GB - £43.79 LN26544

PSU: EZcool 500W - £11.98 LN27088

CASE: Coolermaster Elite 430 £38.38 LN34936

CD/DVD: SATA DVDRW £14.75 LN40284

PNY GeForce GTX 560 £142 .27 LN39374

Which comes to around £524.61 including postage.

All items from Scan computing and the LN numbers can be put in the search bar on the site. Obviously a cheaper CPU can be used and also graphics card. But this is not a bad set up given your budget and the need for a gaming PC spec.
