Help getting a gaming PC URGENT

So I'm planning to get a gaming PC for about 1000$ dollars in total. I would want to play Battlefield maxed out with a good FPS rate with no lag and Skyrim maxed out with no lag. Basically the best computer possible at this time for 1000$ bucks for gaming and browsing the internet a bit.

I was debating purchasing this:

I could probably go for cheaper and upgrade the graphics card but I'm not the best with computers so I don't want to build my own but might consider it.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Fast replies would be great.

ASROCK H61M-HVS, uATX LOL...i recommend you buying the parts and assemble it, or ask someone to assemble.
You need a better card, like the 660 ti, in my opinion, but the 660 gtx in there can play any game for the record.
But for a prebuilt it's not that bad, but it has terrible choices.

Something like this would be better :
