Need help building a desktop

Hello. I am looking to build a desktop from scratch..my budget is within 800-1000$ closer to the 800 area. I will be using this computer for medium gaming plus photoshop. Looking for a good build that is efficient and powerful enough to fit my needs. my budget is not including monitor keyboard mouse etc.. just the hardware. If you guys can suggest some good builds for me i would greatly appreciate it.
