Problems with gaming?

I'm attempting to build my first computer. The main things I'm interested in doing with it is surfing the internet and playing games (specifically Skyrim and Star Wars: The Old Republic when it comes out in Dec.). I'm interested in trying out Linux as my OS but I'm afraid that I'll run into problems playing Windows games. Is there software out there (somewhere) that will allow me to play these newer games that I mentioned? I don't think I'd like a RPM system but I know very little information at this point (maybe it would be better for gaming??).
