If your card will be recording in MP4 format or something compressed like that then a few hours worth of 360 footage wont be that large. So rendering or editing wont be too much of a hassle. Honestly, if your budget is that low you have 2 options to reduce price. Lower the CPU or lower the GPU. The build you have in the OP will do exactly what you want it to do. If you want to game more on the 360 then you can reduce your GPU to something like the 7770 which is about 80 bucks cheaper or so. You can also get the i5 3330 which will reduce the price further. Then instead of the Z77 board (which isn't needed unless you have the 3570k) you can grab an ASRock B75 board which will run about 54 bucks.
Now you should be in budget =)
Is there a guide I can look at to do this? I wanna do this with this computer currently, until I can save up more money. What hardware do I need? Editing, etc.
Since a super PC is not required, I want to do it with this one.
