Hello!, I am looking to upgrade by PC for the least amount of money. I only need to upgrade the CPU, Motherboard and RAM, since I already have a HD 5750. The only game I really play is Counter-Strike Source and I play it competitively. I was wondering if you guys could put together some parts in the $300-$500 range.

Thanks!

That's all it will be used for?

Well, I assume you're going to need 4GB of ram. Do you live by Fry's?

4GB low voltage, 1600, cas 7 DDR3 80$ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo: Probably overkill, but current-gen with SATA/USB3. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|13-130-275^13-130-275-TS%2C13-157-198^13-157-198-TS%2C13-157-191^13-157-191-TS 110$

X4 CPU, again, probably overkill as CS is singlethreaded, but more futureproof and able to run desktop apps well as well. 110$

Assuming maximal prices, that's 300$. Spend the 200$ to get you most of the way to a 120hz monitor.
