I need to get this build down to about $900 but I don't want the performance or the quality of the build to change much http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Cole1128/saved/LmtNnQ

Couldn't quite reach $900. 100hz slower I5 will make little difference, then cheaper equivalent GPU, PSU, optical drive and monitor. Don't worry about the compatibility warning, it will fit.
