Default budget build ,any more corners to cut?

apart from buying 2nd hand are there any cheaper options to get the same performance as the parts listed?

Asus P8H61-MX R2.0 Socket 1155
35
Casecom KM
22
OCZ ZS Series 650W 80+ Bronze PSU
60
Intel Core i5 3350P 3.10GHz Socket 1155 6MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor
130 (this is the main thing I guess for encheapening)
Corsair 4GB DDR3 1600Mhz Vengeance Memory
35
Seagate 1TB Desktop SSHD
70



so maybe swap i5 for

FX-6300
85
Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Socket AM3+ VGA DVI HDMI 7.1 Channel Audio mATX Motherboard
40

would make it about 300 for a PC with no graphics card/os/kbm ect

Any more shaving or would this be a turd?
