General hardware requirements Which hardware is needed for CS:GO?
Counter Strike: Global offensive was already launched in 2012. Therefore, every reasonably up-to-date Gaming PC should be able to run this game without problems. For the sake of completeness, however, we would like to briefly explain the maximum system requirements (highest resolution, details and edge smoothing) in CS:GO. All you need is a Geforce GTX 260 or Radeon HD 4850 graphics card, an Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 or AMD Athlon X2/6,000+ processor and 2 GB RAM. A scope of services that is provided by most PCs today. We’ve added a bit more and would suggest the following hardware setup for a quite cheap Gaming PC:
Mice Deadly precision and speed
Counter Strike: Global Offensive is all about tactics, fast reflexes and eliminating enemies. Precision is therefore particularly important in order to emerge victorious from the battle. Two key figures of the mouse are particularly relevant for this: The DPI and the polling rate. The higher these two values are, the more accurate the gaming mouse works. We have selected some of the most popular mice among CS:GO pros for you.
Headsets Orientation & Communication
CS:GO is all about communicating with the teammates. A suitable gaming headset must therefore have a high-quality microphone so that even fast spoken commands are transmitted crystal clear. Furthermore, the sound quality should be good enough to be able to locate opponents acoustically. We have selected the most popular gaming headsets of the CS:GO pros for you.
Gaming Keyboards for CS:GO Everything under control
In tactical shooters like Counter Strike: Global Offensive, a millisecond can decide upon victory or defeat. Therefore, a gaming keyboard for CS:GO should have easy-to-press keys with short response times. The following devices are particularly popular with professionals.
The perfect Setup Our recommendations
We have now dealt extensively with the best hardware of the CS:GO pros, but what is the ideal setup? If you ignore the requirements for the computer, there are still two different types of players: the price-conscious and the high-end gamer. Of course, even the cheapest of the products presented here is still top class, but to make your decision easier, we have made a pre-selection for both types. Of course in the end it’s up to you what you buy, so consider it a suggestion.
Especially cheap FOR PRICE-CONSCIOUS GAMERS
ESPECIALLY POWERFUL FOR HIGH-END GAMERS
As already mentioned above, this selection is only a suggestion. Of course you can combine the two options according to your own taste or choose completely different products. Even though the prices of the two setups are far apart, the quality of all products was about the same. For this reason, the selection was not particularly easy for us.
