Looks good - I have been pricing up a replacement rig myself, similar spec (still deciding on GPU & motherboard!), however the component parts of this offer seem to be more expensive if purchased separately - although if you can swing the £35 cash back offer and ignore the £60 headset ( ), you might be better off...
The i5 is £156
Motherboard £89 (currently available with £35 cash back @ Dabs!)
Corsair RAM £125 (I prefer Crucial - available for around the same price)
Cooler £61

As a gaming rig it's perhaps a little generous (you could get away with just 8GB and a lesser spec motherboard), couple this bundle up with that R9 280x offer and you'll have a great 1080p gaming rig (Case, PSU, screen and peripherials of your choice)

Just picked up an SSD and looking to grab a mobo, processor and ram replacement. How do these parts stack up for future proofing - is the mobo decent, how's this i5 stack up? Do you need anything else e.g thermal paste etc? Thanks in advance!

Edit - How does this stack up dabs.com/pro…c=2? The liquid cooler seems slightly excessive unless you're overclocking, usually the stock provided Intel one does the job right? 16gb of RAM is also slightly excessive at the moment with 2133 ram looking v.similar in benchmarks to 1866mhz from what I could find (seems a couple of percent difference which is getting down to elitist levels).
