    or if you prefer "RED"

    Personally I'd wait until the new offerings of each GPU family are released (soon we hope) before choosing.

    That's about $880.00 if you go NVidia or about $840.00 or so if you go with "RED".

    Add a couple of hundred for an OS and a good SATA HD and you're good to go (and under budget)! :)
