How about this board at £28.28 from eBuyer.com


This CPU at £21.99 also from eBuyer.com (for about £3 less you could get 
a slower Sempron, or for about £7 more, a dual core Athlon X2)


This memory at £16.27 (it's 2 x 512MB DIMMs but not much difference to 2 
x 256MB)


Does the case come with a PSU?

If not... this might do the job (it's cheap and probably noisy, but 
wouldn't stretch your budget) at £5.99


Oh and you'd need a CPU fan (cheap one for £3.99)...


Comes in at about £26 over budget.

Otherwise, you might be worth trying eBay for second hand components.
