How to Build a Great Budget PC for CS:GO

  • Share:

The way in which video games have advanced has made them much more realistic and fun to play. However, the more advanced these games become, the more powerful the computer or console needs to be to run them properly.

Many gamers have discovered the hard way that PC’s aren’t always equipped to effectively run recently released games such as CS GO. This means, if you want to be able to play the latest games, you’re going to potentially need to build your own gaming rig. Here, we’ll look at the best way to build a great budget PC for CS GO.

Focus on higher core frequency

If you’re looking to build a PC specifically for games such as CS GO, it’s important to note that they don’t use multiple CPU cores. This means, rather than focusing on the number of cores the PC has, you’ll want to focus on higher core frequency.

You’ll also want to make sure you purchase the best graphics card your budget will allow. This is ultimately the most important parts of a gaming PC. 

Know which components you don’t need

If you’re looking to build a budget gaming PC, it’s important to know which components you don’t necessarily need. This includes memory, storage, PSU and the casing. None of these components affect gaming performance, so it makes sense to spend as little as possible on them. That way, you’ll have more money to invest in the components you do need from stores such as RS Components.

Invest in a great quality monitor

Once you’ve built your budget gaming PC, if you have money left over, it’s worth investing in a good monitor. After all, it’s pointless building a high-performing gaming PC if you have a poor-quality monitor which doesn’t allow you to experience high resolution graphics. To get the most out of CS GO, you’ll want a monitor which comes with 144+HZ.  

These are just some of the things you’ll need to focus on when building a powerful, budget-friendly gaming PC. Before getting started, it’s worth doing your research to ensure you know exactly which components you’re going to need. You’ll find a lot of in-depth guides, along with recommendations on the best types of components and hardware to choose in your build. Building a PC specifically for high-performance games is essential for avid gamers to get the best experience.
