Need to cheapen up a build

Shopping Cart contents:

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz

MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX

SAPPHIRE VAPOR-X 100269VXL Radeon HD 4890 1GB

CORSAIR CMPSU-850HX 850W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 80 PLUS

Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB


So far, this has me at about $900.00 CAD, before taxes/shipping.
What I'd like to do is lower the price to $750.00 - $800.00 without compromising too much power.

The reason behind this is I need to add a case, mouse, and a keyboard, and I'm a bit over budget. If you know of any good cases around $100.00, and a mouse and keyboard that, together, also don't go over $100.00, that would be great too!
Thanks!

  2. And if you know you will never put in a second video card, you can save a little more by sacrificing modular cables and going with an even smaller PSU:
