I'm 90% sure it's custom-built.
Who knows, maybe Lewis will post his build in this thread?

not too much if you buy it bits at a time like i am the only hard thing is making it all compatible

Right now, roughly $798.73 including shipping if you live in the US. Not sure about the UK...
Also, that does not include Keyboard, mouse or monitors... That is just the Desktop computer...

Lewis just upgraded from what Simon said, not too long ago, so his specs might be slightly different.

Do not buy a system bits at a time, ever. Buy it in one go, or save up until you can.

3. Tied in with the second point, for the same money you spent to get the parts at first, you could spend the same and get better parts
As to compatibility, that isn't difficult either. Intel and AMD only have 1 current socket each, so you get an AM3 board, it will most probably support all AM3 CPU, you get a socket 1155 board, it will probably support all Intel CPUs.
They all use DDR3 memory, so get some, and it should work
All current motherboards will have a PCIe x16 slot, which all graphics cards use, so don't need to check that
They will also have SATA ports, which all hard drives will use, and which a lot of DVD drives will use.
You then get yourself a decent PSU that is enough to power your system, and away you go.
I would not get a system based on what someone else uses, I would instead look at how much you have to spend and get the best given that.
The systems Simon and Lewis use are not bad, with the exception of their hard drives, as they got Samsung F4 2 TB drives, which are storage drives, not designed for main boot drives. 5400RPM, so slow seek times, which therefore means slow boot and load times. You would be better off with 1TB Samsung F3's instead.
The rest is pretty solid, however the budget would be a deciding factor in which motherboard and graphics card you go with. You can pick up a 560Ti, 6970 or GTX 570 for (relatively) cheap (expecially the first option), and they will blow away the 6870
