So are you looking for a ready system for that price or just parts? If a pre-built then you need a higher budget for a 1060 card. Keep looking at what is available in your area, things go on sale, or look for a used system. Desk, computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, very tough to get past a low range setup for 700, or even 800 when you don't just buy the parts. But you can look for used things and save a bunch, lots of used systems and desks around.
 
One budget buid is a Dell T3500 workstation with one of the 6 core Xeons. It has 3 channel DDR3 RAM and the 525W PSU can support a GTX1060. Here are a couple threads that feature these systems.

X5687(4C8T) 3.6GHz fastest clock , or 6 core 12thread,X5680 3.33Ghz,X5690 3.47GHz with 3x4GB DDR3-1333 can be found for about $150.
For another $60 you can spec. a W3680 Xeon which is unlocked and do some overclocking.
There are many sellesr of surplus workstations. But you can spec. one here and see what it will cost depending on SSD/HDD/ OS and CPU options. I think they all will fit your budget.
