i think you could easily spend around 900ish to make a really good gaming PC for the 1280x1024 resolution, anything above the 57xx series will be complete overkill for that resolution. I would suggest adding a a monitor to the build, and getting something like a 5850/5770 with your budget range.

like the OP said I would suggest adding a a monitor to the build, and getting something like a 5850/5770 with your budget range. If you want to upgrade the monitor to something with say 1980x1050 like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Then change out the HD 5770 to a HD 5850

Not sure i understand what your asking

If i was keeping your monitor with no plans to upgrade it down the road i would buy a HD 5770

If i was going to upgrade it in 6 months to say a rez of 1980x1050 i would but a HD 5850 or 5870 that would be overkill for your rez ATM but would be ready for a new monitor whenever you bought it.
