Almost any modern graphic card will do the job for video editing. For gaming, you will need a pretty substantial card, though. And since a gfx card is the most power hungry component in an average gaming system, we need to know the make/model of your PSU.

Use this chart of PSUs in tier form to pick the best you can afford. The wattage will depend on what you decide on for a GPU and CPU mainly. Any good quality PSU of 500W or better will be sufficient for a system with a $500 - $600 budget. The resolution you intend to game at will determine how much card you need to invest in. 1080p? 720P? something in between?
