Ok, I love to play Counterstrike Global Offensive. So I had to buy some new parts and hopefully have an outcome of great fps. Please feel free to tell me opinions on what kind of fps and gameplay I should be getting from this system. Thanks in advance people!

CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor

Motherboard - GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

Memory - G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7Q-16GBZM

Case - COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

GPU - EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti Free Performance Boost Video Card - 1GB, GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0 (x16), Dual DVI, HDMI, DirectX 11, SLI Ready

Headphones(if they matter) - Sennheiser HD280pro+

Water Cooler for CPU - Still debating(please give me advice on which water cooler I should buy for the 3570... im pretty newbie at this stuff and I want something to keep it nice and cool while in game even.)

PSU - Thermaltake toughpower W0105RU 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Monitor - BenQ XL2420T Black-Red 24" 5ms (2ms GTG) HDMI Widescreen LED Backlight Height & Pivot Adjustable 120Hz 3D-Ready LCD Monitor 350 cd/m2 DC 12M:1 (1000:1)


I will also be running windows 7 ultimate, Kingston SH103S3/120G HyperX 120GB Solid State Drive - 120GB, SATA III, 2.5"(555MB/s Read / 510MB/s Write) and a regular 7200 rpm drive and maybe a raptor.






The Main thing I want to know is how many fps average do you guys think I should get? And will I be able to run at 120Hz consistently. Any other advice is always appreciated. Thanks guys.

everything looks fine except the GTX 560Ti. Dont get me wrong, the card is not bad, but its 1 generation behind. Why not GTX660Ti or Radeon 7870? In max 2 months the GTX 560Ti will be 2 generations behind... (even if you can say that nvidia will rebrand the 6xx series)

The 560ti fpb is actually part of my old system. I just took it, the memory, psu, and mouse and headphones over to the new build. I should still get great fps tho right? I might add that I am upgrading CPU's from an i7 860 from years ago too.

You should be OK even with bringing over some of the components. While you will not have the same performance as you would get with say a GTX 670 it should work just fine. And you will have a rig that you can at a latter time update with a better GPU if needed.

I'd say an average of about 40-50 fps on high. But don't take my word for it. I've never owned one myself.
