Need help with a gaming PC with about $1000 budget

I know this questions come up all the time but I am a novice when it comes to technology. I've been wanting a gaming pc for a while now and I need help with what kind of parts to get. I want to build it myself I've been watching a lot of videos lately and I think I can do it. I want a rig that can play games pretty decent arma games or day z if thats possible. My main goal is to be able to play games that are not on consoles like many survival games like rust or some scary titles like amnesia. I have a ps4 so I want something atleast more powerful than the ps4. Like I said I illiterate when it comes to gpus or cpu's but I want some that I will not be disappointed it and not feel like I have wasted time or money. As for brands I have no idea I am openminded for all i just dont wanted a piece of crap I decided to ask this question on here because I do not know anyone that have knowledge of computers. Thank for your time

    Intel builds are relatively pricey. If you choose an AMD based build then you will get more performance for the same price point.
    Here taking an AMD based build gives me option to add a SSD as boot drive. This will speed up your PC considerably.
