i am trying to build a new gaming system which would also be used for a bit of video editing as well.
my budget is limited to USD 800 to 900. not more than 900.

i intend to salvage the following from my old ring

  1. LG HD monitor
  2. corsair carbide 400r
  3. corsair VS 650 PSU
Since i am not updated with the everchanging tech. could someone suggest a new build.
I stay in Bangalore, India. any suggestion on where to get the system assembled also would be of great help.

Appreciate all your help.

Alright, so can you show me which Corsair VS you have as you may want to replace that if it's the one I am thinking of and are you going to be doing a lot of video editing or is the main focus gaming?

Alright, if you can afford it I'd really suggest getting a better PSU as that is a very old model and isn't the best quality if you need a budget PSU see if you can find a newer Corsair CX. (if it's green avoid look for the white-labeled one)

i might be wrong. but i hope there wouldnt be any trouble with the Carbide 400R. i would be assembling next week.
With that said. i was wondering if my choice of GPU is good. i been a Radeon user for a long time.. if there is a better GPU for that price, kindly suggest.
 
Corsair VS PSU is very good as long as it is supported under warranty. But it is meant for single use case and not to use it for second time in upgrade. I recommend getting new PSU. Get the CXM series 450W PSU. The new VS series is not as good as the old one. Recommend staying away from it.

Mine is few years old, guess 2 or 3 years old
