What's the size of your monitor exactly?
The GPUs we recommend for your price range would be overkill for 1024x768.

Should it be part of the $800 budget?

That was actually a US build. It went a bit overbudget there in Canada, I'm afraid.

I would just drop the SSD if it needs to stay within $800.
