Coupon code EMC503DSKIL for the HZs saves you $15 without changing anything.

Get A Scythe Ninja instead of the Zalman saves you $14

You can downgrade the monitor to a Hanns-G for $135AR (if you're ok with non widescreen)

You can get the Corsair 520W from buy.com for $85AR if you use google checkout (used to be 70AR though )

You can get the E6420 instead which shouldn't make any difference (except for having to stress the mobo/memory more) unless you're doing some really extreme overclocking.

The Fortron 400W will run that system just fine, and it's around 45 bucks, the scythe ninja sells for 40 bucks on newegg, Someone correct me but I think it cools better than the Zalman, although it's huge.

lol. Let's just say that's not true unless you're running it for just a short period of time. The Ninja does cool better, it just doesn't look as cool but that's only important if you get a window.
