    Why not state the brand name of the "branded 500GB SATA 7200 16 MB Cache HDD. It appears to be either a Seagate or Western Digital with those specs... that can help us further advise you.
    also the brands of the other components you have listed as "branded."
    If you live in the USA (which you probably do not since your prices appear to be British) consider getting quotes from www.newegg.com, www.directron.com, www.zipzoomfly.com, www.cdw.com, www.Frys.com, www.Evertek, www.amazon.com, www.PCMall.com and so many others.

    I see nothing about which to quarrel over the lest you have posted, and believe you are on the right track.

    Looking for a top of the line gamers computer, or a mid range system?
    You still have to add the accessories like a CD/DVD ROM burner......
