mini ITXs would fit that build, but you can put 1 GPU and it usually is at the removal of your 2.5" drive bays

This will run everything out at the moment, you may have to play with settings dependant on your games. The only game I could see an issue with on high is BF4, but thats an easy fix seeing as im not even at your bottom end for a budget so a GPU upgrade is easy.

If you find a way to stick a GTX 760 in there, you can run BF4 on high at 1080p better than any console. It'll bring the cost closer to $1000 though. I'm not sure it will fit either unless you get a classified one.

This is the thing you are looking for but i have no idea how to help you take the price down to 1000$

In all honesty, I think that in terms of bang for buck, that would be the best way to go. For $1300, getting a fast computer with a GTX 780? That's pretty good.

I would sub that hybrid 5400 RPM HDD for a 7200 RPM regular one. They're so cheap right now anyway. The hybrid drive would only make a difference for a few small frequently accessed programs. It's a niche market, and gaming isn't that market.

You can also get a cheaper version of the 780, and it may even perform better. I saw a Zotac one in the parts list that was over $100 cheaper.

Well the problem with swaping out the HDD is that you need a 2.5' disk,if i see it correctly only those can fit in the case, so you'll need to get a SSD if you want to get a better pefromance.

And for the card it was ment for that card to be used because its main idea is to exhaust hot air from the back and many custom video card coolers exhaust it from its top (where the pci-e connectors go) or bottom (where you connect it to the motherboard) of the card

Ah I see. I haven't really worked with small systems like this which I why I like to interact and give advice!

The only problem with a SSD is that we might not get enough storage space for the cost. If it's a Steam machine we might be able to get it running with 512GB, but that would cost closer to $400 just for the drive.

I hadn't thought of cooling issues. I'm sure there are other cards out there with the standard cooling that could be used for cheaper.

Well i havent gotten the chance to reed more about them but i have seen some disk drives that are "Hybrid" i really don't know how they work but if what i've hear is correct they have a high capacity and a fast Read/Write speed.

Well i havent really looked up how most of the custom cooling solutions work but from looking at my gigabite winforce 760 it looks like they all do exhaust from the top and bottom. After time you really cant find video cards with stock coolers for a good price but maybe i hate having to say this you could find some cheep that are second hand.

and your not at your max so more $$ can be put into the CPU, that is the biggest PSU that will fit in that case so thats something to keep in mind.
