LOL I got hard times to give these boyz my calm opinion on fps and actual playability with these and similiar specs. No offense to anyone who is innocent in this and everyone has right to ask here, but IMO with these specs its pointless even to ask in 2016... sorry buddy :/

Yeah I perfectly understand, there are more important things in life than PC to spend money on, but still I mean on my PC CSGO runs fine, 300fps, but when your GPU is 1400% less powerful that is just too big performance gap. But anyway everyone is playin games for fun so even im playin 1.6 sometimes, bcs is great game and that should run great on your RIG. ;)

Yeah Global Offensive is kinda tricky in this bcs it doesnt run well on C2Duos so u must have at least 450$ budget for ur PC then... Or refurbished with i3/i5, they use to be pretty cheap, around 300$... ;)

Not really enough to play competitively but if u wanna shoot gold2s on 60fps than u will be fine. For better experience, better equipment needed. ;) Gettin 295-300fps on full hd maxed out. Only on nuke 200-240fps and thats even sometimes not enough. hah :D

With AMD CPUs in CS:GO its hard to say due to its single core perf... Of course you can max out the game on 1440p and get those crappy 60fps but like i said, for real competitive play, Intel is a must have. :D

No and 30fps is still not even close to "playable" in CS especially... I tried it on i3 hd4600 which is marginally faster and it was horrible :D. But if u wanna try real fun then throw smoke or two. ;)

I wouldn't recommend playing at a resolution that low because you won't be able to enjoy this game. What i would recommend is to upgrade your entire PC.

If you keep it at low with no Anti-aliasing(including FXAA) and no motion blur, you can get a range between 45-70 FPS
