If you already have the monitors/Keyboard/Mouse, there's actually quite a bit you can do for $1000. Here's a link to a build that barely cracks your budget (after rebates) and will play every game on the market right now. If you change the GPU down to a 7870, you'll end up under budget, and you'll be fairly surprised at what that card can handle.

If you're not interested in rebates, and gaming is really your primary focus, then you might want to think about an AMD system. The FX-8150 is a reasonable chip at a good price. And unless you're worried more about benchmark scores than actual gaming performance, it will perform just fine.
