Need help with building a desktop. Would someone be able to lay out the pieces I could get according to my budget?

A friend suggested this site to me for getting a desktop build. I could really use some advice and really just some experts telling me exactly what to get. I might tweak a few things but since this is my first time building a computer, I might just go with what you tell me. I already have peripherals I just need a monitor. If it fits in my budget, which is $1000, please go ahead and include it. If not then it shouldn't be too hard to get one. And LED 24" seems like a good choice. Basically I need a list of all the parts and just be able to order those and build my computer. If there is anything i left out and you need to know in order to help me please let me know.
Thanks

    Well, you never said what you need a computer for, so I threw together a computer that can do everything pretty good.
