The price is based more on features of the motherboard than brand/manufacturer name.

Cheaper motherboards are less likely to support multiple graphics cards (SLI/CF). Keep this in mind if you ever planned to use multiple graphics cards.

ASUS is a solid manufacturer and the Asus P8Z68-V LX sosofm listed, is a quality board.

Not quite convinced by the CPU cooler though, id recommend:
Hyper 212+
Hyper 212 EVO
Hyper TX3
Arctic Freezer 13.....all more budget oriented, and all great coolers.

£81 for a 650w Bronze PSU.....really.....no no no....

£53 XFX 550w

or if you really think you need 650w
£65 XFX 650w
http://www.scan.co.uk/products/650w-psu-xfx-pro-series-...

or if you really really want to pay the extra for Modular cables
£72 XFX 650w (Modular version)
