Quad-core processor, motherboard, 4GB of RAM: £500 tops (for a really snazzy one). Antec 9000 case (even has glowing lights on fans...): £100. 1TB SATA HDD X 3: £300. Decent RAID card: £500. Use RAID 5, gives you 2TB of apparent storage. Spend more money on the storage (RAID card with large cache to improve read speed) rather than the processor - bet your processsor is pretty much idle most of the time.
