Budget CSGO Machine

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all. 

I'm building my friend a budget computer for CSGO only. They literally only play CSGO. They have peripherals already, so tell me what you think:

I know I'll need a CPU to give the motherboard a bios update!

Can get a way cheaper case, the motherboard and power supply aren't worth the money.

A320 is a crap chipset, there's decent B450 boards at the same price-point

I own an A320 board and they're absolutley fine. People go on and on about how crap they are but if you actually use one on the daily, there's nothing to complain about. I agree, if you can find a B450 board for the same price, then go for it but A320 boards work great with Ryzen 3 and Athlon chips.

I think it's great, except I would FOR SURE get the Ryzen 5 3400G instead of the Ryzen 3 3200G. If he's planning on rolling integrated graphics, at least get the good integrated graphics.

 

If his jam is CS:GO, a high refresh rate monitor will be in his future. the R53400G will at least let him see over 100FPS fairly consistently, reducing the competitive disadvantage.

I looked it up, the FPS is negligible no?

For CS:GO only, a 9th gen Intel CPU will do better than second gen Ryzen. You can also cut the SSD down.

 


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

3200G owner here. It plays CS:GO like a breeze on Vega 8. No idea what you're on about.

Well, it's for Zen+ instead of Zen2 cores, so second gen architecture (all G processors use last gen cores). Would be slow for high fps gaming, so if that's a priority, consider the i5.

We also cannot afford a graphics card
