Hello all, I am looking to convert from a long run in console gaming. I also dabble a bit in video editing for family events and such. I have a micro tower build that I purchased from a friend who actually used this site to build it a little while back but I think I prefer keeping that as my school computer and backup. I suppose to keep it all in budget I could transfer some components but in the end they would need to be replaced or put back. I don't know too much about computers but I am hoping this is a doorway to something new and cool.
My budget is about $1000 US. The system does not need to be maxed out by any means as I would like to keep it relevant and be upgrading it in future years.
The micro I mentioned contains an AMD Athlon X4 860K on a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H Micro, two 4GB sticks of Kingston HyperX, and a Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB Dual X. All in a Cougar Solution Mid Tower. Uses a 650W Fractal Design Integra R2 PSU, Western Digital 1TB HDD, and an ASUS DRW-24B1ST Opt Drive.
Any lack or surplus of relevant information displays just how much I know about this. As such, I would be happy to fill any gaps of information.
I also own a few low end monitors, a good keyboard and mouse, a decent headset, and HOTAS system. I use Windows 10. I am also considering a new monitor and the price for that would not be included in the original budget.
EDIT: No need for Windows or any peripherals. Maybe a nice monitor though :)
