That really depends on what you plan doing. Gaming? If so (and if it were me) I'd start by looking at my graphics card.

Cooling is, for the most part, fairly cheap. Good after-market CPU coolers aren't too expensive

A little hard to give just one suggestion. MOBO, Vid Card, RAM, and CPU in that order. IMO. that puts you way out of your price range, sorry.
I\'m happy with it.
