He said "cheap as possible".
This is about as cheap as I can get without speccing a computer that would totally suck:

Asus Vintage PE1 Barebones System - Intel LGA775 - £55.95
Intel Celeron D 326 2.53GHz (LGA775) - Retail - £28.95
OcUK Value 512MB (2x256MB) PC3200 184pin DDR Memory - £24.95
Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8 40GB 6K040L0 ATA-133 2MB Cache - OEM - £23.50
NEC ND3550 16x16 DVD±RW Dual Layer ReWriter (Black) - OEM - £19.95
OcUK Value Floppy Drive - Black£5.95
Hyundai ImageQuest Q770S 17'' Perfectly Flat CRT Monitor - Black/Silver - £64.95
Logitech Value Keyboard - OEM (KB-049-LG) - £4.95
Logitech S96 PS/2 Optical Wheel Mouse Black - OEM (KB-046-LG) - £5.50

Subtotal £234.65
VAT £41.07
Total £275.72

You could run an open source OS such as MEPIS to save on a copy of Windows. That would include word processing and web browsing capability.

Buy an Antec case with PSU for around £45

Antec SLK1650B Black Quiet Mini Tower Case - 350W

Then get on Members market etc. and pick up a cheap Socket A motherboard, i.e. Abit NF7-S v2.0 and a cheap AMD Socet A CPU, some cheap DDR, cheap HDD and cheap DVD-RW and you'll be set :)
