What games other than minecraft does he want to play? It doesn't take much hardware to run that, so you could go with a cheaper graphics card. Something like the gt 720.

I would say they're probably really closer in performance for Minecraft. Maybe in some other games one or the other would take the lead, but honestly they are pretty close in performance.

This build should be able to play those games, but obvioulsy not on ultra settings. If you wanted to play those in ultra graphics, you'd have to extend the budget a couple hundred dollars but it should do fine but i think you should extend the budget a bit more and get the fx 6300 for better performances, plus more cores. Most people say cores won't make a difference but games are becoming multi-threaded and will need as much cores as possible to play better.

He told me with your build what fps would he get In low setting csgo?

Hmm.. probably about 40-60fps, could be a bit higher like 60-90fps. It'd be good enough for the game to run smoothly on low settings, i can't test it but i doubt it would be lower than what i've said. With a tight budget build like this, you won't expect ton of fps only enough for the game to run smoothly.

Thanks for the help he told he wanted 75+ fps because my computer is just for work and it runs csgo at 40-60 fps and he hates that XD .
