You could still play games on this build, but don't expect playing all modern games on high/max settings. Also, I was about to recommend the i7, better for video editing, but due to the budget you have, I stayed with the i5 as you wanted. You might want to consider the AMD bulldozer or piledriver's 8 core CPUs, they are not good at gaming, but they are good at multi-thread programs, such as video editing, in some cases, it even outperforms the i5 CPUs on multi-thread programs.
