I am looking for a good PC for mainly CSGO, the problem is I have a very low budget. I know it's probably not ideal but I'mm looking for a build between 300-400 UK Pounds. Sorry for the low budget but I'm hoping to get a good PC!

It's possible to get an i3 and a 950 in the budget. It's more than enough for CSGO, and the i3 is still capable for many games that are far more demanding

The CX has just as much quality as the EVGA you selected initially, which isn't a whole lot. But the CX is a great fit for this build since it's low-power and stock speeds, so the only two weaknesses of the CX won't be pushed.

The 380 is a great choice, I just think it's a better idea to go more cpu-centered since it doesn't take a lot of GPU power to max CSGO. To be fair, the 380 is a much better choice if OP is interested in playing more AAA titles.

The unit is alright. It won't cause a fire, but it doesn't have great voltage regulation and it doesn't do well at full load. The CX is the same way, but it offers a tad more reliability and modularity.
