Need help for a $800 gaming build

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!

    Yes I may be able to return it. What do you suggest as a build if I do?

    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.
