Hey guys. I'm looking for a build that's in the ball park of 400-500 bucks. I play csgo competitively and i'm looking for a build that can get me a constant 120 fps no problems

Should I go AMD or Intel?

Here's a modified version with AMD CPU. AMD should perform a bit better but doesnt have upgradability. The Intel one is upgradable to i5/i7.
