Only thing I can think of is dropping the processor down to a i5-4670K.

Why go down to i5? Wouldn't i7 be better for gaming and everything else?

The i7 barely performs better than the i5 to justify the extra $100 you spend.

The good old price per performance. With the money you save, you could also add an SSD in there, especially since the prices have come down recently.
