Need help picking parts for mid range gaming PC for CS:GO

Hi guys,

I'm a uni student from the UK (Cambridge). I've been needing to upgrade my PC for a while now. I have a budget of £700, but it would be preferable if I could spend less. The build I have proposed below is sort of what I am looking for, however I was wondering if anyone here could tell me if I'm overspending/underspending anywhere or missing anything crucial.

My main questions are:

Do I have the correctly sized power supply?

Will the PC run at a relatively low temperature?

Will this PC be able to reach the 200-300fps range for CS:GO when playing on low-med settings?


Please keep in mind that I mainly playing CS:GO which is a CPU intensive game. (hence why I am spending so much on the cpu).

CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor (£174.98)
Motherboard: MSI Z97-GAMING 5 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard (£106.14)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance Pro 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory (£41.49)
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB TWIN FROZR Video Card (£106.45 )
Case: Fractal Design Define R5 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case (£77.95)
Power Supply: Corsair CX 750W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (£68.99)

Total: £576.00

  1. why do you need to play at 200-300 fps? Your PC looks great just be aware of that PSU. I have the same and it coil whined since day 1 but got used to it.
  2. I would even change your processor to an Intel pentium g3258 to save a little bit of money.
  3. Hi, Jist found this thread hope I'm not too late I've just made this bit cheaper and will have 40-50fps on high maybe ultra if you want to get more performance for abit more price you could get a 390 or a 970. P.s. why would you need to have 200-300 fps supposedly you can only see up to 28fps.
