Hello, This week I built my first gaming PC. I spent 33,500 Yen (I live in Japan) about $300 US dollars.

The out come was this:
MOBO: Asus P8Z68-V
CPU: Intel G530 LGA 1155
GPU: Radeon RH7750-E1GHD
Power Supply: KEIAN Gori Max2 650W 80+ Standard
Ram: 8GB Team Elite 4GB x 2 1333 Mhz
HDD: Seagate 500GB
DVD: Unsure but works just fine
Case: Zalman Z9 Plus
OS: Windows 8 (Store swore to me this is the full version and not the upgrade version) So of course the activation key stopped working once it installed as its a new build with no OS. Luckily the registry edit fixed the issue and it activated properly.

My question is what should I upgrade first? I will be using this strictly for gaming, recording, and video editing.

Thanks in advance for your comments

All that for $300, thats a pretty nice deal you got.

CPU seems to be the weak link to me, definitely that first. That Celeron chip I cant imagine performing that well when video editing.
