If you want a "deal" then buy AMD. But Intel gives much better performance in CSGO.

You will need a new CPU/Mobo/DDR4 RAM if you want to upgrade to anything more than the i7-4790K.

What is your budget?
I was planning like $250 but ig up to $500 something worth it for the imrprovement cause I don’t want like a minor change , n are used or refurbished parts okay ?

Used parts can be okay. They can also present problems. If you understand the risk, then it can be an option.

I kinda need to know what case you have to know what CPU coolers will fit. But I would recommend something like this for a proper upgrade. I put the Hyper 212 below, but I would personally spend a little extra on the cooler to ensure proper temps and a possible overclock.

At the same time you can get a nice AMD build for MUCH less. But like I said before, Intel is considerably faster in CSGO.
