I voted no because...Improve your graphics card to GTX 1060 and it might run 60 fps
but the processor could bottleneck it so get an i7 or an i5 atleast

My brother run cs:go with E8500/4GB/gts450 1GB @720p about 80-110fps and bugged maps like cache/inferno/mirage about 50-70fps.
I am running those bugged maps around 78fps-130fps others around 130fps-220fps.. Dust2 runs exeptionally well constant 160fps all @768p since my GPU is 64bit

Dude are you a try hard or you are too dumb? GTX 1050M IS A LAPTOP GPU NOT desktop GPU... Explain me how you can put a XMX socket GPU to a desktop motherboard into PCI-E slot?


Second IF you are using laptop HOW can you put a DESKTOP CPU into a LAPTOP? I am a laptop upgrader, but I have never seen such configuration... and why the hell are you draggin Win7 into this when I even didnt ask?
