Funny you should ask... Aria.co.uk have a Pentium Dual-Core E5700 (3GHz 
dual core CPU) kit consisting of CPU pre-overclocked to 3.8Ghz (it's 
just a BIOS setting) and motherboard with 2GB Ram and a CPU cooler for 
£140 inc VAT.


(if the link doesn't work it's quick code 43779).

Or if you want something already in a case you could opt for one of 
their bare bones systems such as this Athlon II X3 450 (3.2GHz triple 
core) with NVidia nForce 430 chipset with onboard graphics and 2GB Ram 
for £150 inc VAT.
