Gaming-Audio Performance PC ?

I was thinking about building a PC on about a 1000$ budget. I mainly need it to play new online games like Star Trek Online or the new Star Wars: the Old Republic (not released yet). I also need a system that can handle music production programs and audio well. A fast system with a good graphics card and audio. Any suggestions? I also need a monitor. I'm still using an old box Dell monitor. I'm not too worried about future proofing or anything. Storage I'd say around 500gb-1tb. Any help is much appreciated =)
