I'm looking to build a gaming PC for $800 (can go maximum 850 if needed) and I have already purchased:
Antec GX700 - $25
ASUS GeForce GTX 650 ti boost - $120
Optical Drive - Free

It will be used for gaming, video editing/rendering, and streaming.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Well, that GPU is too weak for that budget. Can you return it?

This is the best gaming performance you will get. You could change some things like CPU/ motherboard if you are interested in overclocking but you will be sacrificing gaming performance by getting a lower end GPU.
