To be able to answer you more efficiently, I need you to define what your idea of " i want to upgrade to something better" is.
In what way does it need to be better or what is your ultimate goal here?
Because with what you are asking currently, you're going to need to also upgrade the power supply, a new heat sink and install an SSD. With everything else you "want", all you need now is a motherboard and case and you have a whole new computer... 😉

Umm... I am merely pointing out the fact that what you purposed, would not make any sense financially. Plus buying parts for a whole new PC would defeat the purpose if you're only going to reinstall that low end graphics card back into it. You should consider keeping that old PC complete for a back up. There are other forums dedicated to doing your homework for you and spelling out exactly what you would need to build your own "do it yourself" PC.
What kind of games are you expecting to play and on what kind of monitor and at what settings? There are a lot of questions to ask yourself. I don't know what games you are wanting to play and on what type of monitor.
$1000 will get eaten up fast if buying your own components, you might want to look into simply purchasing a more powerful PC that's already built. Then the work is already done and you will have a warranty to go with it, if something goes wrong. Since you don't know what you're doing, this might be something to consider. If you can save up a little more, I would look into another PC that already has what you would want.
