  • Liquid cooling not a necessity.
  • Lower the video card model.

There's not much you can do to cheapen up the build without lowering performance, so here's my suggestion: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/Y3yddC

I changed the watercooler to a much cheaper air cooler sine it's apparent you want to overclock, I changed the motherboard to a cheaper Gigabyte motherboard, as well as the RAM to a cheaper faster set.

It sounds like the power you're expecting from the build is something that you really should just save your money for one or two months longer to purchase.

Otherwise, if you're willing to give up the ability to overclock, the closest I could get to $900 without losing any performance, is this: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/R4M7GX It doesn't have an aftermarket air cooler, and it has a locked processor with an H97 chipset.
