Trying to find a way to bring the price down a bit without hurting performance too much. I have been told that if I went with an I3 that I would regret it. Any tips? PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

an i3 wont hurt gaming much at all unless you are playing cpu intensive games (civ, warhammer, other similar style games)

A ISO? And why the monitor? Budget is $900.
