First time gaming PC build between $800 & $1000

Hey Guys.

I am looking to build a gaming PC that will run Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4 and TES Skyrim on high-ultra settings if possible and also The Elder Scrolls Online when it is released.

Things I don't need: Moniter, Keyboard, Mouse and I already have Windows 7.

I however will need everything else and if you could suggest some builds that fit my needs I would appreciate it.

I also live in Australia if it matters.

Thanks for you time guys :)
