Looks good to me. Nothing much to lower the price in. Just look around and see which website has lower prices. Other than that, can't think of anything else.

I'm assuming this is a general PC (i.e. no gaming). If so, then maybe you can bump down the RAM to 4 Gb for now if you really have to.

Could go AMD and get a Phenom II and a motherboard with a video out. But you would only be saving $10 or so on the CPU, but a motherboard might make up that cost. This CPU should perform a bit better in multitasking due to the 4 physical cores, while the i3 only has two physical and hyperthreads another two virtual cores into existence.

If its just a general use computer that wont do very demanding tasks, you could go down to 4GB at no loss to performance. This stick is 4GB and runs a bit faster as well.

Not many more ways to save cash unless you mount to a bit of plywood instead of a case.
