Okay heres a system that will handle vista nicely-

CPU-
Intel Pentium Dual Core e2200 - £49.30

MOBO-
Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L - With Onboard VGA - £36.00

RAM-
Crucial 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz - £26.94

HDD-
Western Digital WD1600AAJS 160GB - £26.91

CASE and PSU-
Coolermaster Elite 330 Black Case With CM eXtreme Power 460W PSU - £47.99

OS-
Vista Home Premium 64-bit - £63.02

DVD Drive -
Optiarc DVD-RW Drive - £15.90

TOTAL: £268.76 inc Free p&p

You could also save a couple of pounds by going 32-bit on the operating system.

The processor is pricey, but it is really worth it when running vista, 2gb of RAM is also pretty much a must. I could go alot cheaper but chances are it would be unreliable, all the parts I have selected are quality and should last well.

You could go cheap on the case and PSU and save a fair bit, bu cheap PSUs are often a false economy, and that coolermaster case is very nice. My suggestion for a cheap PSU/Case combo-

Be warned though, the case will be like a pie tin and the PSU will be very cheap quality.

Looks very good actually, I would change the case/PSU to the coolermaster combo I found. I never thought of going amd . Vista is cheaper here too.
