Need help upgrading my PC!

I was wanting to upgrade my graphics card and my processor to meet the current standards for new games coming out. Something way better than what i have but I'm not good at making sure things will be compatible. My price range would be less than $1000 for all the parts i would need and for if i would need a new motherboard or something. And if i would need to upgrade other parts than what would be good? My current PC specs are:

Processor - AMD Phenom II X6 1090T (3.20 GHz) Motherboard - MSI 890FXA-GD70 (MS-7640) (AMD, PCI-Experess=x16) BIOS Brand - American Megatrends Inc. Version V1.7 Memory - 8 GBytes DDR3-1800 PC3-12800 4Gbx2 Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 (1280 MBytes) Storage - Samsung SpinPoint F3R Enterprise Class 1 TB Internal hard drive Serial ATA-300 3.5" 7200 rpm HE103SJ Power supply-750W Case - Cooler Master high tower

I tired to include as much as i can! Thanks for the help!
