I wouldn't expect to buy a gaming rig at $900 with a monitor. However if I was going to buy a gaming rig at your budget I would go with this configuration. Its my own personal budget build, just take out the things you don't need and you will be under your $900 mark.
I don't think you can make a respectable gaming rig with a monitor at a budget of $900 or less
