First Build Gaming/Video Editing

I need help building a PC that is able to run After Effects, Sony Vegas, Hitfilm and that kind of software im not look for awesome render times just to be able to run the software nicely, and some gaming, im not looking to ultra settings but i want to be able to play games at nice fps and nice settings like gta v and bf4 and new games. Right now im using a macbook pro which runs after effects but its gets hot and very slow and i really need to see the difference, I also used and xbox 360 for gaming but it doesnt work anymore. I hope you can help me. My max budget is $850 dlls, just including keyboard and mouse and software within the budget i dont need any other peripherals. I will not be overclocking and i want to be able to upgrade later. I also wont need a dvd drive and i need to be able to conect to wifi. Im really new i know some things but im not really an expert.
Im buying in USA this week.

I wont get that money in some time so i need to choose the correct PC for me.

Somebody told this could fit my needs but im not sure i need help.

  1. Looks good to me! I would get 16GB ram for rendering and a i5-4690.
  2. Take a look at this.

    http://www.tomshardware.com/system-configuration-recommendation-54.html

    There are several other builds there as well. On the build I linked you can vary the graphics card to zero in on your budget amount.
  3. The list you linked is going to lock you in to a low to average performance build.
    I would start off with a better CPU.
  4. I dont necessarely want the one I listed, if somebody can give me another build it would really help.
  5. Check out the System Builder Marathon, Q2 2014: Our Budget Gaming PC as well.
  6. This is a solid build for both render and games:

    That looks really good! I would invest in the extra $60 for a GTX 750 ti.

  10. Thanks for best solution dood!
  11. Xeon E3-1230 Vs i5-4690: roughly same performance in games; really stronger in After Effects, Sony Vegas...

    Radeon R9 270X Vs GTX 750 Vs GTX 750 ti. See for yourself :)

    PS. Why DDR3-1333 Memory?
