    I think you might be asking for a bit too much. A new 775 2.66GHz Celeron and Asrock 775V88+ can be had for £62.

    I would but in the UK companies take the piss with the cost of graphics cards, for £60/$120 your looking at a nvidia 6600LE or ATI x1300, whereas on tigerdirect in US i could get a 6800 Xtreme for that!

    Do you mean this 6800 Xtreme? If so then it only has 8 pipelines and isn't going be all that great; about the same as a 6600GT. X1600 Pros can be found for around £60 - £65, but that's pretty much it for new cards. If you don't mind used, have a look here.

    That Xtreme I linked to is based on the 6800XT core (also known as 6800LE) and only has 8 pipelines open; the same as a 6600GT but much lower clocked. I wasn't aware there were any other 6800 Xtremes.

    EDIT: newegg also stock it and say it has 8 pipelines.

    No problem, it's an understandable mistake. I learned a while ago never to trust XFX and their marketing division :shadedshu

    I'll have motheboard on it's own for £30, if it's Micro ATX, for my old P4 478. I don't need the CPU.
