Hi guys,

So i had the idea of converting my old poker pc setup to a low budget dedicated video editing setup.

full hd nothing higher.

The comp is 8 years old so i font expect miracles, my plan is to install linux (mint?), get a videocard and video edit full hd videos. Software will be openshot or kdenlive nothing professional.


  • Motherboard G1.Sniper.B5
  • Corsair vs550 only 550watt 80+
  • Cpu i7 4771 boxed 3,5ghz @3692 with stock cooler
  • 16 gb [email protected] hyperx fury
  • 256gb ssd samsung evo

Currently no videocard...

Now my question should i consider some dated videocard and which one

I think the power unit is a bit the bottle neck anyone?

Seems like a good time to pick up a GPU, especially when ETH goes POS. No idea about which one, though.
PSU seems sufficient for anything you could put in there. We are talking maybe 300 watts for GPU+CPU? The rest is peanuts anyways. I believe people oversize their PSU a lot, which makes them run less efficient.
