look here mate. www.overclockers.co.uk. all good stuff there.

i'd personally go for a 400watt psu so u can add additional fans eta. for the fan and heatsink go for a globalwin or a coolmaster. they are both good. have a look around on the site. very good prices on there. i have used them alot

Enermax for PSU......power, depends on what you're using and what spec your system is. If it's a decent system, don't consider anything below 400W, and for top-spec, go for the 550W or thereabouts.

Cases, fans, etc, I tend to go with Coolermaster......not overly expensive, look good, but keep things nice and cool (my Athlon XP2600+ never goes above 45-degrees, even when left on permanently for weeks).

If you are concerned about noise, then the psus to go for are Nexus, Zalman, Fortron, Seasonic. If noise isn't too much of an issue, then they don't come much better than Antec.

Watt ratings don't mean shit for cheap PSUs. My 300w Nexus gives miles more stable juice than my other 550w qtec, and is as silent as psus get. A *decent* 300w psu is more than enough for most home users.

For the heatsink I'd go for something like http://www.tekheads.co.uk/s/product?product=601860

with a panaflo l1a 80mm fan.
