Not quite that much money but...

Check out my $1100 build here:
http://www.squidoo.com/electronicandmore
Swap the 7950 for the GTX 670 (+$30) Remember to use the promo code
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Swap the 650w for this 750w (+25)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Total: $1176 before rebates.

Solid build and you save lots of money, the mouse and speakers as well as keyboard is up to you. Windows is fairly cheap here, reliable site as well. BBB approved with an A+ rating. It's a site based in Utah but that do online sales.
