DDR3 ram is cheaper now but still an extra £59
OCZ Gold 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz Low-Voltage Dual Channel (OCZ3G1333LV4GK) [OCZ3G1333LV4GK] Memory DDR3 Dual-Channel - PC3-10666
That is on offer

Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H AMD 880G (Socket AM3) microATX DDR3 Motherboard [] Motherboards AMD AM3 (800 Chipset)

£140 (postage and ram offer may go off)
