Hey everyone,

https://pcpartpicker.com/user/zerocoolbkk/saved/2C6qqs

This is my first post and my attempt at my first build.

Any suggestions on how to bring this down closer to the $900 level? I can handle what I have in my parts list but I was trying to keep it closer to $900 with my budget.

Also what are your opinions on my build?

Thanks!

You will have to go with an AMD CPU MOB and GPU. Maybe get a cheaper case and it can get to 900.
