Hi guys,

I'm not very familiar with building its own computer and I don't follow up on every new parts that come out (cpus, gpu...).

So I kinda need your help to help me achieve a good/very good build for less than 1400$ including monitor and peripherals. As I am currently playing on a samsung laptop with no dedicated GPU beside the intel graphics, it's kinda difficult to enjoy every games.

I mostly play CS:GO, but there is no way I can play competitively with my laptop. I tweaked it to get 120fps but that's it.

So here is a build I made on PCPartPicker and I would like your opinions and suggestions if possible! That would be great!

Thanks again!!

I tweaked the build a bit here, and got you a better processor, and a GTX 770, which based on my own personal experience I think would make you much happier than a GTX 760. The build comes out to $1,488.36: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3sFNB

Edit: However, if you absolutely have to be under $1,400 I can still get you a slightly better processor (newer version of the same processor essentially) but it would still have to be with the 760 instead. That build is here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3sFQA - $1,398.35

Yep, this build here basically achieves the same thing, but without a mouse/keyboard/OS, so if you need those they'll be extra.

My advice don't dump money into expensive crap. The Razer and your peripherals aren't worth it. You are paying for a name not a good product.. It's a fact that expensive mice and keyboards don't enhance your gameplay or experience. save the money and put it towards better parts in the system.

+1 to this. For a $1400 budget you might even manage a GTX 780...

I just wanted a nice mouse, and a mechanical keyboard.

I can think about the steelseries Kana for mouse, less expensive than the razer. But for the keyboard ?

Best,

mechanical keyboards are loud and really don't give you an edge. You can get a $20 mouse that will last longer and give you the same performance.
