Hello community,

I've been out of the computer game for quite some time now. I used to be frequently on here but forgot my credentials.

So here's a challenge for the enthusiasts that think they can build the best Intel/Nvidia based gaming build for pretty much just CS:GO.

Here's the real challenge, I got about $1000CAD($775USD) with some leeway if it's worth it.

Challenge requirements:

~$1000CAD

INTEL/NVIDIA (preferred, or persuade me. I've just always been bias towards them)

CASE: https://www.corsair.com/eu/en/Categories/Products/Cases/Carbide-Series%E2%84%A2-Air-240-High-Airflow-MicroATX-and-Mini-ITX-PC-Case/p/CC-9011070-WW

~250 steady FPS


Thanks so much!

If I pick your build I may be able to reward you if that's allowed.
 
Do you require OS, peripherals, monitor? Do you only need it for gaming?

If you need SSD, it will increase the budget. Your case ate quite a bit into the budget and CAD prices are still pretty high.

I really like that first build and yeah I'll have to buy a monitor and such. I'll see what my options are if some people post some other builds. Thank you so much for your time! If I pick yours I'll see what I can do for you in terms of a small reward.
