Hey everyone,
I'm not very good at deciding which PC parts and I want to get started.

With this PC, I'll be recording gameplay, editing, posting it online and gaming from time to time.

Does anyone know any good builds (preferably between $700-$900) that fits the description?

I live in Australia, so keep in mind that builds that are around $900USD can be $1000AUD+ due to mail in rebates and other stuff.

Budget build:

Depending on the games, you should upgrade to 16 GBs of RAM. You should be able to add 2 more HDD/SSD. I recommend using Fraps or Dxtory for best results with this build. Don't try to OC without getting a better CPU Cooler.

Best solution
