1000$ Gaming Rig

Hello,
I'm looking to build a cheap but effective gaming rig, for games such as Skyrim (On High). I have been eyeing this rig I found on CyberPower and as you may or may not know you can customize it to want you want.

I am going for a computer for around 1000-1100 dollars, and with the rig I built I was wondering if it would have a good performance for it's price. Or if I should wait and get a better rig in a few months. (I have a horribly paying job and it will take me months to save 1000$)

Here is the rig:

    Too powerful CPU, too weak GPU. Try going for something like the build in my sig.
