Really hard to say. I tried to stick to $1000 a month, but it came coser to E1000.
I spent something like E1600 in month in Argentina, because Christmas and New Years were expensive.
Only spent a few hundred in Bolivia because it's so cheap.
Day trips are usually around $40 so depends how many f those you want to do.
Hostels average around $10 in the Southern countries, Peru and Bolivia were cheaper.

Will you be staying in dorms? Living on rice?

Thanks.

Ended up being around what u said. €1000 a month in the cheaper places (Peru, Boliva) and over €1500 in Argentina and Chile.

Course might be a bit different now!
