Ok here's what I came up with:
e7200 - £87.95
Gigabyte DS3L - £60.16
Coolermaster 330 case - £24.60
8800gt point of view - £106.99
Corsair 2gb 4-4-4-12 DDR2 800 - £35.80
Total - £315.50
And free shipping if you choose super saver (comes pretty quickly)

The 8800gt is a non-reference cooler that I haven't seen before. Most probably works fine though. And I'm presuming that you can keep your hard drive and psu from your old build. And I'm not sure what you'll do about an operating system as that copy of vista is most definately tied to that dell so you'll have to buy a new copy for around £60

The E2180 is an amazing overclocker, I've heard. Not sure about the e7200.

Go for the ds3l. The e7200 may even be able to get to 4ghz (although 3.6ghz is a realistic average). The e2180 is great for its price but runs hotter, I can get mine to 3.5ghz (but others can't get above 3.2ghz). The e7200 is cooler, more energy efficient 45nm technology, If you can afford the extra I would go for that.

The e7200 is still pretty new technology so not that many people here have it yet. The few owners have started a club though, you can look here and see their overclocks: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...45nm-club.html
One guy got his to 3.8ghz, but that's on water. Another with the DS3L motherboard got his to 3ghz without changing the voltages at all which is impressive.

As for the Abit Vs Gigabyte motherboards, I'd go for the gigabyte. It's £16 cheaper and known to be a fantastic overclocker. My friend took his e6750 to 3.6ghz on it easily, and Coffeejunky with a Abit IP35 himself is recommending the DS3L.
