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.

i5 4670, 16 GB RAM, CUDA capable GPU (550ti/650 or higher).

main build:
video capture card:

I designed this custom build so it could be upgraded in the future. I chose 16GB of ram because converting videos and recording take up ram so with the 16 GB you should be fine. The video capture card is just an idea. they are good if you are hard core gaming/recording because it takes a load off the system :D 

hope this helps

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.
