512mb of memory is not nearly enough.As it comes with no o.s,if you choose vista you will need 1gb of ram minimum but 2 would be better as some will be used by the onboard graphics.
If you also ad a 512mb 7600gs graphics card to your 2gb memory it will take you to £265.14,which will be a nice system for what you require.

This might interest you bearing in mind you will always find good and bad reviews for any site.

mrwoowoo in the link I posted the system I chose is £303 it has 2GB of memory and winxp os, what graphics card would you go for I've had a look there is a number of 512mb 7600gs cards which one is it? bare in mind I don't play games

unfortunately the drop down menu's you choose don't show in a link only the origional page.
the one i looked at was priced at £44.65,xpertvision 512mb gef 7600gs but any 512mb card will handle video no prob.
Even a 256mb card is fine if you are not gaming,depends on buget really.
