Counter Strike, hey? Thats one old game, but one with real constitution. Like most of Valve's carefully selected and championed mods, it stands the test of time with ease.

Online FPS at its best and it is now receieving some much needed spit and polish. Step forth, Counter Strike Global Offensive, with your new maps, weapons, matchmaking and characters. Lets take a look to see if you are able to meet the Counter Strike Global Offensive system requirements...

Counter Strike Global Offensive System Requirements

OS: Windows® 7/Vista/XP

CPU: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom™ X3 8750 processor or better

RAM: 1GB XP / 2GB Vista

HDD: At least 7.6GB of Space

GPU: Video card must be 256 MB or more and should be a DirectX 9-compatible with support for Pixel Shader 3.0

 
Did you play Counter Strike and stop? If so will Global Offensive draw you back to the classic shooter?

4 cores will be more than enough for 600 series..for example my cpu or 2500k or 3570k...those are good quad core cpus which can handle easily the 600 series
