850$ Gaming Desktop

Hello! Just want to say first, this is my first post, so I will probably do something wrong. :p  Anyways, I make YT videos with my $300 (I live in the US, so dollars. :p ) laptop, and it's just not cutting it. I need a computer, whether it's a desktop or laptop, for around $800, no more than 875, that can render videos super fast, and handle games. Being able to record games while rendering a video using Vegas would be a major plus. Here's the form thingy.

Approximate Purchase Date: I'm saving up, so in a few months, probs next June, depends on the Youtube moneys. Basicly, I'm in no rush.

Budget Range: If it's an amazing deal, no more than 900 but I would really like to keep it around 800

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Rendering videos fast/video editing, Gaming, General use.

Parts Not Required: I could pick up a mouse and keyboard at a Target or something, no need to have that shipped.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Doesn't matter, but the lesswebsites, the better. Ordering 10 parts from 10 websites would be a pain. :p 

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: While I'm not a computer expert, I know what Intel processors will do, same with NVIDIA graphics cards, so those two brands please.

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Again, kinda a computer noob, not sure what this is, I think it's either ram or GPU memory? idk.

Monitor Resolution: Doesn't really matter, would prefer 1920x1080, but any other decent one is good.

Additional Comments: the 850 does include the monitor. I would rather have an i7 processor than a GTX 650. Also, any estimate on how long rendering a 40 minute HD Minecraft video would be with an Ivy Bridge i5 or i7? I currently have a low end sandy bridge i3, and it takes 3.5-4 hours. :/ 
Thanks so much! There is a local computer place, so they would probably help me, as I'm 13, and have never build a computer before. Haven't even had a desktop since I was 6. :p  Thanks! One more thing, a 1TB hard drive would be nice, but I could make do with 750GB. 8GB of Ram would be enough.

Wow, thanks! Also, I just found out that we have an old computer monitor in the attic, so that's awesome. Not sure if it still works, but it might. I figured an i7 wasn't possible.

No you don't need a cpu cooler those are for overclocking the sound card is o.k. if you want it.

I would not recommend a sound card unless you have really good headphones or speakers.

Why? Could a sound card hurt anything? I have a decent headset, but nothing fancy.
