hello guys,
im looking to get myself a new gaming pc, i play games like GTA 5, H1Z1 and mainly CSGO. im looking to run up to 300 fps on CSGO.

im hoping someone could help me build a pc for around 500-600 pounds, if you could include a mechanical keyboard to go with it that would be perfect.

What exactly do you need within budget, aside from the system itself? We know you need a keyboard, but anything else, like monitor, mouse, headset, etc? If you're using a monitor you already have, what monitor is it? Any interest in overclocking, or would you rather avoid it? Any preferred aesthetic or anything?

i have all the other accessories that are needed apart from a keyboard, the monitor im using is a Asus something and has 1ms response time. im struggling to understand what you mean by overclocking so whatever you think is suitable and around that price.

thank you

Nice mech keyboard. i3-6100 and RX 470 will handle 1080p well.

If you want to max out the budget;

CPU: Intel Core i3-6100 3.7GHz Dual-Core Processor (£105.46 @ Scan.co.uk)
CPU Cooler: CRYORIG M9i 48.4 CFM CPU Cooler (£15.48 @ Ebuyer)
Motherboard: MSI B150M PRO-VDH Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (£64.98 @ Ebuyer)
Memory: Avexir Core Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory (£61.98 @ Ebuyer)
Storage: A-Data Premier SP550 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£55.99 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: Asus Radeon RX 470 4GB STRIX Video Card (£189.71 @ CCL Computers)
Case: BitFenix Nova ATX Mid Tower Case (£28.99 @ Overclockers.co.uk)
Power Supply: XFX TS 430W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply (£36.22 @ More Computers)
Keyboard: Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire TK Wired Gaming Keyboard (£51.28 @ Amazon UK)
Total: £610.09

Nicer RX 470 with RGB LEDs, and will perform a bit better, at lower temps, and will also be quieter. Nice cooler for the CPU, and an extra 8GB RAM. If you need it cheaper, just use the i3's stock cooler or get the 8GB RAM linked above(instead of 16GB here).

that looks really good, thanks alot.
i was wondering what do you think is the better build from yours against this (http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/YCFBjc) i cant seem to get the price to appear for the PSU its around £40 and the CPU cooler is about £20. so should add up to about £610 too.

i have already purchased the keyboard now.

thanks

Both of those are bad. They're also both more expensive. What I suggested is better. You don't need an i5. Especially not a Haswell i5. AM3+ makes no sense. Bad case, PSU and SSD. RX 470>R9 380. 380 doesn't make sense.
