Unfortunately, I do not have any experience with UK dealers or anything. After a quick google search I found a few places :
They offer a few budget options :
Check out the " Chimera " Build
Zalman Z11 Plus Gaming Case
Corsair CX 500W PSU
Intel Core i3 3220 3.3GHz Ivy Bridge Processor
ASUS P8B75-M LX Motherboard
4GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz RAM
Nvidia GTX 650 1GB Graphics Card
Seagate Barracuda 500GB SATAIII 7200rpm Hard Drive
High speed DVD and CD Rewriter
7.1 Surround Sound Audio
2 Front & 4 Rear USB 2.0 and 2 Front & 2 Rear USB 3.0 Ports
Comes in at 469 pounds. Or you could find a place in UK that allows you to customise your order and then pay for the service. Although I know many people say build it yourself etc... one of the cool things about this service is that many places offer burn in tests, bios updating, and complete system checking & warranty before your parts are shipped out, so there's not really a chance of RMA's or anything, cost about 99. And then you can learn where everything is plugged in & add upgrades over time
Honestly man, I recommend doing a little research to see what parts would be best, take a little bit of time out & see how the parts perform. Make a list of 5 - 10 games you play often, check the requirements of all of them, then consider what else you need / want to do on your pc, then find the best parts within your budget and put the machine together, or pay for the service for them to ship your system out to you. It can be quite over whelming at first, but it takes just a little time to get a solid list of parts.
Alternatively, head over the both the Intel " General " and AMD " General " sections that is usually full of people and ask fellow uk members to put you together a parts list, as I believe parts are expensive in the UK, I think theyre expensive here too, don't worry.
