$1300 Australian Build

Hey guys, I'm looking to put together my first build sometime in the next few weeks, and would love some suggestions.

Approximate Purchase Date: 1-4 weeks

Budget Range: $1300 to $1500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (BF3, Witcher 2, Skyrim), Surfing the web, Video editing, MS Office

Parts Not Required: Nothing (I'm gunna start from scratch, my previous 2 Computers have been gaming laptops)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: umart.com (Australian site), or Amazon

Country of Origin: Australia

Parts Preferences: Intel i5-2500k

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Probably in the future, start with one card, then OC later on

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080, 1920x1200

Additional Comments: Because I'm in Australia, I would prefer suggestions from Umart.com as it means no shipping, however I am open to buying internationally and shipping. If you are posting international builds (e.g. newegg or Amazon), please include an approximation of the shipping costs to Brisbane, Australia.

Here is a link to Umart: http://www.umart.com.au/newindex2.phtml?bid=2

This computer will be used predominately for gaming, such as BF3, Witcher 2, but also for modding Skyrim, so it needs to be pretty beefy.

I don't mind not having an SSD, however if you can squeeze one in with the build that would be nice...

Any suggestions would be awesome, as this will be my first build, and I need all the help I can get!
