$100-$200 PC that can run CSGO on all low settings at 60 FPS minimum

I'd expect 40FPS with that build rather than 60FPS. Tho, it's more CPU intensive, as you said. But the CPU is not that great either..

I play Counter Strike: Global Offense with this build, all low on average 120 FPS.

I don't think you'll have a steady 60 FPS for $200. You might get 60 frames here and there, but you make a sharp turn and it will drop.

I'm not saying you won't be able to play the game. Based on Valve's requirement specification you should be able to run it. But a stable 60 FPS is too high of an expectation.

Maybe if your budget is so tight you should play CS 1.6 instead.

This is what I would go for if I only had about 200.

I've seen CS:GO run on the integrated graphics.. just. Low settings, 720p and probably around 30fps, but this is a solid basis for an upgrade to perhaps just a basic 750 ti/ r7 360...

Yeah that will be great! I just replaced my 650 Ti and for this level of gaming it was still awesome.

It should be. It's crap. An Antec VP-450 is a MUCH better unit.

To take a case with a PSU in it you save some money, and I don't think the PSU will be THAAAAAAT bad. This gave you an A6 instead of A4, some speedy dual channel RAM to actually give it some good performance.

This PSU is HORRIBLE. It WILL fry the PC, or worse. NEVER buy a diablotek PSU.
