Help building first pc.

As the title of the thread says I want to build a gaming pc. This will be my first time building a computer. I am currently in the 12 grade so my money is kinda tight. I can spend $700-750 or possibly as much as $800 on the computer not counting the OS and the peripherals. What I would like is if anyone here could tell me a good build for the money I have. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

edit: The type of games I want to play are BF3, Skyrim, and Borderlands.
