Do not buy Razer laptops - they have horrible quality control and customer support, bad internal design and electrical engineering, are known to frequently fail within the first year or two. Have well documented heat, noise and battery problems. The quality is below that of many Chromebooks. Avoid them.

Well you don't really need thin and light actually. Since the game you play the most is CSGO you probably don't need super high end GPU either

 

Consider Acer Predator Helios 300 PH315-52. Or Legion Y540 if you don't mind the extra thickness. Both under $1200

Never recommend Razer laptops due to bad QC+QA
