Just a question... Do you need 300fps? Granted, I get ~180fps with everything at max, but then I game on a 120hz monitor as it is.

What monitor do you have? If you've just got a 60hz monitor then anything above that in any game is pretty much pointless.

Anyway, any of the latest i5s will be fine, but even AMD's 8320 will most likely be good enough. You'll get awesome frames still with something like a 760 (a single one gets me between 90-120fps), or an R9 270X.

Also, read this article for tips on improving performance in CS:GO, was published just today in fact!

P.S. James Mason is an idiot (never thought I'd say that...), eyes don't see in typical FPS terms. Pro Quake players used to overclock their monitors all the way to and past 200fps, but that was in the days when that was more common and a bit easier.

Thanks mate, and thanks for the link :D . I was looking at your system in the lower right corner and what fps do you get (if you play CS:GO of course) ?

Well maybe I was going on slightly outdated information.

I do indeed play :D  I get about 150-180fps, with literally every graphics option set to the absolute maximum, at 1080p resolution. Then again, if I set my Anti Aliasing down to 8x, I'll probably get another 30-40fps on top anyway. Good thing is, is that it runs on the Source engine, which could probably run quite well on a nice 4-slot toaster.

WOW. I am currently playing on a Toshiba laptop and i get like 80 FPS on everything low and only one option medium on a 1600x900 resolution. It must be a huge change to play on a PC like that one, probably going to buy the exact same one :) . I have never had a good gaming PC in my whole life, i always had low to mid PCs.
