Hello
Just about to purchase a new PC rig:

Motherboard - ASUS P5B Delxue
Memory - Corsair 2Gb (2X1Gb) CorsairTwinX XMS2
CPU - Intel Core 2 DUO E6600
PSU - OCZ GameXStream 600w Silent SLI Ready ATX2

Can anyone advise on any cheaper memory or PSU, rig turning out more expensive than i thought but still want the good quality.

Also

Regarding RAM: there are tons of different corsair kits that fit that description

First, what is the exact memory you're getting? There are various types of that Corsair kit (DDR2 533, 677, 800, and then also with different timings). Only when I know that can I tell you if there is a cheaper version.

Depending what you're going to use this rig for, the most obvious saving is on the CPU. A E6300 will be significantly cheaper, and overclocks like mad.
