First Time PC Buyer - Gaming/Editing - $6-700

Budget: between $6-700.

Location: New Jersey, have a micro center near by FWIW.

Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): I plan on using the PC for gaming, a little bit of video editing/graphic work, and for live streaming from my console.

Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): None

Operating System required: None

Really, that is all. I plan on buying most of the parts from the Microcenter close to me but I can order them. I've never built a PC before so this will be my first time. Thank you in advance.

Also, I was planning on buying an R9 380 and i5 (don't know which model yet)
