So who can tell me the cheapest parts to put together a Cs Source/Go comp?

I'm guessing newegg.com would be the way to go, but what type of graphics card and ram/hard drive should I use?

Basically I just want to put it together just to play cs

Source is ancient. Updated all the time, but not so much that a 2-3 year old rig couldn't play any games built on it.

As long as you have a decent dual core processor and a dedicated video card I'm fairly certain you'll be able to play CS:GO.

Wow. I feel bad for you.

I'm not trolling, just saying that building a PC for the sole purpose of playing one game is ****ing retarded, that's all. You're spending up to a grand just to play one game that will completely suck. Think about it.

Speak for yourself. I got out of that money pit years ago.


Please pardon me if I took your post the wrong way, but you're coming off as a gigantic fanboy. That game is going to blow. You'd still be missing out on multiple hundreds of titles that are worth playing PC for.

I'm rather saddened to hear that CS:GO will not feature cross-platform play.

Cross platforming was used in shadowrun. it just doesnt work, PCs get much better pings then consoles, and pc players get a advantage with using a mouse.

Amen. I'll destroy anyone who uses joysticks when I play on a comp.. It's just not fair. Any yes, a PC should run faster than any consul.. It just wouldn't work

Most people upgrade their rigs for specific titles they are excited for, and only upgrade when the next one rolls in.

I upgraded my PC for Skyrim, but that doesn't mean I only played Skyrim. I also play BF3, Civ5 plus a ton of others.

Also, you seem to have this notion that every new game will be bad. In the halo thread you stated that Halo 4 will be bad, despite you never playing it. And now you are stating CS:Go will be bad despite not playing it.

I got into the CS:GO beta through that survey and I can say this: it is nothing new, but it is still fun. it feels like a rebalanced, prettier and generally upgraded CS:S.

I understand upgrading to play more games, but the way the post was worded led me to believe that the only game he will ever play on it is this fun-for-1-hour gem. And, judging by his lack of a rebuttal to prove otherwise, I'm pretty sure that's exactly what he meant. In which case I reiterate: It's a stupid idea. Just about everything in here is an opinion. Not really sure what "facts" you could bring up to prove that this game isn't a steaming pile of horse**** compared to 1.6.

One thing is for sure though, buying a computer just to play 1 game is retarded.

Counter Strike most certainly doesn't suck.

Those $250 bundles on Newegg would probably play CS with decent graphics just fine.

And, this way, he is capable of playing other games (not graphic intensive ones, mind you, but DX9 no problem) if he so chooses to.

I think you're the one who needs to do a little thinking here.

Since you are a obviously a consolite, let me put it in terms you will understand: we upgrade our rigs usually not to play a new game, but to play a game with better graphics. Up until my recent upgrade, my 'ol girl had about the same specs as a 360. Since I didn't want to play Skyrim on all-low on a really tiny resolution, I got 2 graphics cards secondhand from a buddy that was upgrading for BF3 (they are ATI, ATI doesn't agree with most DICE games), and a fancy dancy new processor from new egg.

Now my game does have a tiny view distance/blurry textures like the xbox edition!

Anyway, CS:GO will not have 1 hour of play as you say. People are still playing the gldsrc version of CS 10 years since that came about. CS:GO does have mod support and custom map support, so within day there will be surf server, a zombie mod, deathrun and likely a jail RP mod. And my personal favorite game mode, gungame, which has given me at least 100 hours of entertainment.

If your goal was to make yourself look like a misinformed overly-opinionated ***, as you did in the Halo 4 thread, you have succeeded.

I'm glad you have no idea about the topic at hand.

Re-read his post. This has nothing to do with the capability to play games if he chooses to do so. He clearly stated he wants to play no games other than counter-strike, remaining ignorant of hundreds of titles that deserve more recognition in the very first place. Don't even dare tell me that playing 1 game for the rest of your life is a good idea.

You don't have to bring Halo into this either. You know dick about Halo, and therefore aren't worth my time arguing about it.
