Need 3 Builds for Varying Prices


I'm new to this forum and new to building computers in general, me and some of my friends are switching to PC gaming starting this summer and we are going to completely switch to PC by this winter. We already know how to assemble the parts and know the necessary pieces you need to complete the rig, but we dont have a good idea for a build for our money. I have already looked up some parts and need some help finding more pieces that are compatable with the rig, I'm trying to build. I need 3 rig builds, 2 for around $1000, I can go a little higher and lower and so can one of my friends, and one for $500-$600. We are looking for effect gaming rigs for the prices we can spend and we need an OS for all 3 so include that in the price. My friends are starting from scratch but I have a monitor, speakers, headphone, mouse, and keyboard that I'm going to use. As of now I want this case included in my rig:

Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case, support up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, come with Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan

So please forum, help me get 1- $1000 and 1- $500-$600 build from scratch and one rig that I can spend $1000 with the THOR case and the equipment I already have.
