http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = 205.00
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = 220.00
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = 47.00
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = 60.00
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = 94.00
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = 250.00
or if you prefer "RED"
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = 205.00

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)! :)
