Newbie help with gaming build AUD $800-$1200

Ideally between AUD $800 - $1,200 but prefer to stay under or close to $1,000 and to include all costs

Brisbane, QLD, Australia

Mainly will be to play games on high/ultra settings efficiently and smoothly - some Skyrim but mostly Sims 3 & 4 incl. expansion packs, heavily modded; large amount of photo & music storage; but also for general document processing & storage & web surfing, watching dvds, streaming netflix

Need OS but have no real preference in which version of Windows

I don’t mind what it looks like in the slightest - colour, size, none of that matters to me

Just mainly want to be able to play Sims on high/ultra settings, don't want to deal with lag or anything. Not looking for bare minimum for this but don't want to go overboard. Can be a little flexible with budget if necessary
