vid card: Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X OC 3GB - $269.00 http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1642&products_id=27107

edit - was doing my best to make it <$1000, struggled, so any changes to help would be great! but wouldn't like to 'lose' much performance/reliability wise

Change the CPU to the i5 4460 + H97M PRO4 or change the motherboard to the Z97 Aniversary + Silverstone Strider Essential 600W (or 500W).

The 4460 are pretty close in performance, but it's not overclockable.
