It's pretty good but I would change the RAM to 8gb and probably go with a more known brand like G.skill, Corsair.

If you want to save money then get a Asrock z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Motherboard

and a Corsair TX750. If you don't plan on SLI then a good old 500w can do that trick.

I would get 560ti than 460. :)

I have a £150 budget on the graphics card other than a GTX 460 because the 560 ti is £185 and i cant afford it and i just want a graphics card that is able to runs games like skyrim, mw3, batman and bf3 smoothly.

Is this a good bundle for £300 (OcUK Motherboard Bundle - Intel Core i5 2500K & Asus P8Z68-V Intel Z68 Mainboard)

Not seeing a £300 bundle. If you see something, post a link.
Bundles are generally poor value - a 10% charge for listing it as a bundle on the site.
I can see the point of an OC bundle but otherwise, just buy the bits.
