    Performance comes at a price. Your spec's price cannot be lowered without compromising performance. e.g. 2GB value RAM is not as good as the OCZ kit.

    So the answer is no :)

    I didnt think it could really be beaten but I was wondering if you would swap any components? e.g. PSU or motherboard?
