im assuming that 1000-1500 is in australian dollars. in which case thats equivilant to about $1350.
then there's shipping cost and from amazon to US is normally not too bad.
but if you want it direct from an aussie site then: http://www.affordablelaptops.com.au/contents/en-us/d470_metabox-clevo-w650sj-laptop-notebook.html
that's realistically the best you're going to get, on the same site you could get an MSI appache pro for $200 more. the 850M will play all those games you mentioned above easily, just may be not on max settings, and for skyrim you'll have to watch your mods a bit or lower the textures and stuff.
