well u could get a non-sli mobo if u are not going to use 2 vid cards. But ofcourse it's good to have the SLI just in case u need it someday.

No need for floppy drive, but might aswell get it since not a really big effect in price.

Also u could get a cheaper dvd-burner, u can get some for like $30

Not much more u can do, maybe search for a cheaper ram, but that won't really make any difference sinc $75 for 1Gb is already a good price. (well value ram ofcourse but still quite a nice price)

And if u really need to make it under $900 then just get a cheaper case. There ain't that much difference in case, some ofcourse have better cooling but aslong as it's a tower case with atleast 1 fan u are not going to run into overheating problems. (unless u screw up with the heatsinks)

get a DFI ultra D motherboard its cheaper than that one i think and it can be modded to go into sli so u can do that when u get a second card and u could get a 500W psu which should cost less and i think the DFI is better anyway
