I've bought everything for this build except for the CPU and the PSU. Like an idiot I didn't factor the MIR and am short of money to complete the build. Now my two options to fit my budget are
A. Buy a refurbished version of PSU and keep the i3 4160. OR B. Buy a new version of the PSU and downgrade to a G3258.
I'm building this PC for gaming, mainly to play CS: GO at higher FPS, preferably 120+. Which do you recommend I do?
