Brand New To Computer Building

I am going to be honest. Im brand new to computer building. I dont know what parts are compatible with other parts. I dont know much about computer components. I would like to build my own computer. I would be using this mainly as a good home computer for storing my music, photos, and editing videos with only GoPro Studio. I currently have a laptop that cant quite handle my GoPro 4 Hero Black edition and I need something that can. Basically it comes down to this... Im asking for advice on the best build for lets say $1000 or maybe a little more. Im always open to options. Spending a little more money wont kill me. Honestly i dont even know what i can get for this amount of money. I just want it to be well rounded for home use and able to be compatible with GoPro editing, as well as future upgrades and obviously length of use. I dont want to have to buy a new computer in a year. Please any advice would be greatly appreciated. I will post my photos of this build after. I would like a little bit of light features for accent my first build. Im very particular in wire mgmt as well. So hopefully i can build this with the help of others and show the results. I am from Arizona. USA

Thanks in advance

This will be a VERY solid workstation with some low end gaming ability since it isn't running on integrated graphics.
