Solid CSGO Build £350-£450.

Hey all, apologies if this isn't entirely possible but PC builds are not my strong point at all.

Basically I'm looking to build a PC that will predominantly be used to play CS:GO. I'm not entirely bothered about graphics, just looking for something that I'll be able to play on 1024x768 or 1280x1024 res with mid-high settings and achieve a stable 200-300fps.

I've got all the peripherals including a 144hz monitor and I own another PC that I do all my other stuff on so memory isn't really a priority either. I'm also not looking to stream or really to use it for anything else at all, just pretty much a standalone CSGO machine, I don't really play any other PC games so I'm not concerned about it quickly becoming outdated for future games.

Additional info: I'm based in the UK.

If this isn't at all possible then I'd be grateful for any advice on what I could expect for that budget or what sort of budget I should be looking to spend to achieve this sort of build.

TL:DR = PC that can run CS:GO on a decent resolution at mid/high settings at a stable 200-300fps for around £350-£450 and doesn't need to do a lot else.

Cheers all, hope you're having a good day.

Could switch to the Samsung EVO 250 if think need more storage but since you said only one game then 120~128GB is plenty. I did not intentionally gave a 4GB of VRAM, it just fit in the case without the hassle of removing the hard drive cage is all. Sorry it is not exactly £450 but this would work well too. (I cannot seem to find certain power supplies on my end, most likely due to my location.)

Oh my goodness... talk about my typos! I meant to say Samsung's 850 EVO. My bad... darn my lack of sleep. :)
