Im very new to bulding pc and im not in the US so it is really hard and expensive to build a pc. This is for gaming and editing.
HDD 1TB WD10EFRX RED
Case: Cooler master K350
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2 DVI
Power supply: Cooler Master 525W V 2.3 Extreme 2
Video Card: Gigabyte GV-R785Oc-1GD
CPU: Intel core i5 3470
Ram: 2x4G Corsair C9
This already cost $700-$750 in my place but i know it only cost like $500-$600 in the US. What would you guys recommend? I want a budget gaming PC and sometime use it for editing. Thank you sooo much for reading :D

Approximate purchase date: In about a month
Budget range: $500-650
System usage for most to least important: Gaming
Are you buying a monitor: no
Parts to upgrade:
Do you need to buy OS: no
Preferred websites for parts: newegg
Location: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Parts Preferences: Core i5 and at least i3
Overclocking: Maybe, im a noob so i don't know much
Your monitor resolution: don't know but maybe you can recommend a monitor because mine is pretty old. So maybe 500-650 for the computer and another 100-200 for monitor.
Additional comments: Prefer to be quiet. Play minecraft, league of legend and want to try new game like battlefield 3 etc.
And most importantly, why are you upgrading: My computer is sooo old that it can only run League of legend and minecraft in very low setting.

This is a nice budget build that leaves you almost $200 dollars for a new monitor if you want one. If you're happy with your current monitor, see the build below.
