Ok so I was planning on building a "Configurator" pc on cyperpower.com but I don't know which to go with... My budget is $1,000-1,500. I don't know whether I should start with with the AMD or INTEL? Apart from the I wouldn't know what parts to get for them either...

Not interested in building it yourself? Your money would go a lot further, but I'm not going to tell you how to live your life. I'm not sure how far $1500 is going to go for a pre-build system but I'd start with an Intel i5, or an AMD 8320 or 8350, 8gb of RAM, and a 280x, 770, or 290 as budget allows. Pre-build companies almost always throw in the cheapest PSU's they can get which is really bad. If there are options for anything else from Corasir, Seasonic, XFX, i highly recommend taking it, if not then I would research how to change out the PSU yourself to a quality unit.

I want to build it myself but my knowledge of any the high brands and stuff are few... My friends are talking about like a nvidia something or other... I only know what the parts do.

If you wanted to saturate the full $1500 budget you could step the CPU up to an i7 4770k and get a Corsair H100i liquid cooler.
