Need a little bit of help changing up a build

So I want this build to be around $1000 (can be less obviously but not too much more). It still needs an optical drive, and I already have a case. The main thing I need help with is finding room to add an SSD memory. Is there anything I can change from this build so that I can incorporate and SSD memory. (Anything on the build could be changed really). Thanks

IMO I would say the sweet spot for ram 1866 cas9, that would save some money to add a SSD. ALso WD caviar blue is better than the Seagate. You could save a little more with the 970 itx from gigabyte.
