I need a new computer as I would of upgraded but my motherboard is a 775.

This is what I have come up with: - I don't need a GFX as I already have one, along with a HDD.

I have a tight budget as low as possible but not making it a rubbish PC, I also want to keep it so it can be updated for the future e.g to 3rd gen I7. etc.

The RAM you've picked is the slowest that works with that motherboard upgrading to PC1333 RAM (whereas yours is1066) will cost you about $2-4

I think, if you plan on going to Ivy Bridge then your going to need a bigger PSU but with out specifics on Graphics cards and Drives its hard to calculate.

My budget is around 400 pound but wanting to keep it as low as possible. Also Nvidia 460.

I changed my ram and psu to peoples suggestions, is 600watt enough? Will I be needing a CPU cooler etc as I will not be overclocking.

600W is more then enough. No, you don't need CPU cooler since the CPU includes a stock cooler if it is retail.

Ok thanks, but won't it overheat then? Also I would of bought the build by now but the prices are more expensive for the UK shops rather than the prices on newegg.

Anyone got a suggestion?

No, it won't overheat as the Intel stock cooler are designed to handle the thermal specifications on the CPU chip. There are few good online UK stores like www.scan.co.uk ; www.dabs.com ; www.microdirect.co.uk/Home ; http://www.ebuyer.com/
