Base price is $687.00 Add in the rebates, and it's only 607.

Anything I could swap out that's cheaper/performs the same?

I would change the PSU to Corsair Builder Series CX430 and change the case to the NZXT Source 210 or Fractal Core 1000. Your case might be fine though, not sure. Also if this is for gaming, get an HDD larger than 250gb. That little space will be used up in no time.
