Greetings. We can look into this with you. Did you need any peripherals (monitor, mouse, keyboard) as part of your budget?
How much higher would you be wanting to go? That will help us make recommendations.
@Billy_Thomas just chiming in. See the Microcenter pc building link below. We put a build together for you minus the graphic card. Our site fluctuates on GPUs depending on what's in stock. At the time of putting this together nothing was in stock.
For graphic cards to get total build (see link below) around $1,000, look at the RX 580 or GTX 1050, 1060,1660s. Those cards should run you anywhere between $200-$400. Depending on the card you choose may put you between $1,090 and $1,200.
@Billy_Thomas the only way to find out that information is to google the card and frame rate for the game.
Your search would be "GTX 1050 frame rate for valorant".
A couple sites good for this would be:

Hi I am also a first time PC builder, my friend recommended this build to me, Im mostly going to use it for gaming, schoolwork, using adobe programs heavily such as photoshop, illustrator, In Design etc.
Ide just like to know of I could make it better or of this would meet the task of what im going to use the PC for
@dan12 just chiming in. This looks to be a good build. The Ryzen chip comes with a stock cooler, so you really won't need the Noctua cooler. The Noctua may be more quieter than the stock and perform better from a benchmark perspective. But the Wraith is still a very solid cooler. If want to save a little bit of money, the Wraith cooler is suitable for your needs.
Everything else looks good.
