I'm currently upgrading a friends computer and I'm making a budget PC, I just wondered if you could check the following out and let me know of your thoughts:

Gigabyte GA-945GCM-S2L Intel 945GC Socket 775 £36.94
2GB DDR2 RAM £0 - got these spare
Intel Celeron 336 Socket 775 2.80GHz 533FSB 256KB L2 Cache OEM Processor £34.95
Hard Drive - got one
LAN Adaptor - n/a - built in motherboard
gfx card - n/a - built in motherboard
sound card - n/a - built in motherboard
Case w/ 300W PSU £18.59
DVD+-RW Drive £7.99

Total: £98.47
Everything from ebuyer.com so delivery is free. =)
Is this everything I need?
Sound OK?

If you can find cheaper prices for these products let me know, or cheaper/same price better components. =)

A dual-core Celeron (Celeron E1200) is available for about £3 more. The one you've linked to is four year old technology. The dual-core Celeron will be better and worth the extra £3, since even the low Core 2 Duo's seem to have shot up in price.
Remember to factor a heatsink in, or if you do take the dual-core Celeron it's retail-boxed from eBuyer.
