    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

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