new to pc gaming need help on a 800-1000$ build

Hello I'm completely new to pc gaming after previously being a console gamer I'm looking to build my own pc but have no previous experience with anything like that I want a pc which can run bf4 on high or ultra settings and also run minecraft without lag for 800-1000$ i don't want to go over this price so around the 900$ range I'd like quality parts which I can use without issues for a few years also even though it's not important I'd prefer a cool looking case rather than just a real basic one.
This does not include monitor mouse or keyboard as I can figure that out myself thanks for you help.
