I am planning to build my very first gaming pc by the end of october or early november. being completely new to the pc world I'm really overwhelmed by the number of possibilities.

I am going to play mostly fps games like battlefield 4, titanfall, cod: ghosts maybe with some exceptions like tes online.

at the moment the budget would be around 1000.

thanks for reading and potential input.
and sorry for my english.

thank you for the build.
but unfortunately the motherboard and the case seem to be not available in my country.
are there any other options for those parts you would suggest?

Yes. Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
Fractal R4 is good case or Corsair 550D?
Maybe cheaper corsair 300r?
Maybe Asus P8H77-V LE Intel H77

thanks, I can definitely work with these suggestions.
I kinda feel stupid now that I've noticed that I forgot to mention in the original post that my budged is in EUR which according to google would be 1351,5 USD.
would you tweak anything? I sure would have no problems if it costs me less than I expected but input is always welcome.
and I apologise for taking up your time.

Depends lot where are you buying parts.
Maybe bigger SSD / HDD , Better PSU. Better mobo.
If you but this from EI I think better buy is intel xeon 1230V3
And new 1150 mobo.
Look if you find Super Flower Golden Green or Golden King psu. Thay are better than any other brand at the moment.

If you give me 1150 € + delivery + windows if you need one. I make you a killer machine :) 
But really it is not much that much better.

But look this.
