I am planning on transporting the hard drive from my broken computer into this new build so I don't need to buy a new HDD or OS. What do you guys think of this build? I can not spend any more money than I already have on this computer. I am planning on using Sony Vegas, After Effects, 3DS Max and Blender for this computer. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Also, the site estimated this build would use around 349 W so i got a 650 W PSU, is this enough? And would transporting the OS via HDD from my old computer to this one work (it should since the OS is installed on this HDD right)?

Transporting the OS via the HDD will most likely not work. And getting it to work, well, you'd be better off reinstalling the OS or using a Linux distro(But after effects probably won't work very well on Linux.)
