The best I can do is Fidelity Spartan US Equity index fund. Here's a big laugh for you, in their online information, Fidelity posts all their fund returns relative to the S&P 500 EXCEPT FOR their S&P 500 index fund.

Probably because it is so close to the S&P 500 return. I have to agree with Nizac that you could be worse off. Actually, I think Fidelity Spartan US Equity Index is FUSEX which has an expense ratio of only .26, which is very nearly as low as you'll find. (Vanguard Index 500 is .19)

If you look at the 10-year returns of Fidelity, Vanguard, and S&P (as of 6/30), they are 18.28, 18.37, and 18.55.
