Hey guys! I have been saving up for the last couple months all the money i could find and after christmas i will have enough money to buy a beast pc! The problem is, i dont know what i need for one.
I need someone to think of some specs or find specs that would suit me.
You can even go on CyberPowerPc website and build me one and then send me the configuration number!

Requirements:
RUN MINECRAFT AT ATLEAST 250 FPS
PLAY CS:GO FLAWLESSLY
BE ABLE TO RUN GTA 5 WITH NO LAG
HAVE ATLEAST AN I7 PROCESSOR (OR ANY PROCESSOR EQUAL TO OR BETTER)
BE UNDER $700

Thanks guys! If you have anymore questions about the requirements or anything else, feel free to ask! I am IN NEED of a new pc and do NOT want to waste my money on a prebuild, thanks a lot! :D

I don't think you can GTA V and CS:GO with no lag if you are going for a $700 PC. I have a $1100 i5 and it lags a tiny bit with CS:GO. Also the graphic card matters more then the processor. Nonetheless here is what I recommend. It's a bit over $700 though.

You lag playing CSGO with an i5? yikes I'd be taking a look at your graphics card if I were you

Generally with a budget of 700 dollars - go for a custom built one. You could either buy the parts and build it yourself (a lot cheaper) or use a site like ibuypower which'll get you a cheaper PC that is set for your liking and you don't have to configure.

With 700 bucks you'll be able to run pretty much any modern games (other than black ops 3; really heavy on your graphics card) with low-medium graphics.

You can check what games you can run using this site.

I have a GTX 750 ti but it doesn't lag to often.

The graphics card in this build is getting pretty old and you can get something better in the same price range... especially if you get an i5 instead of the i7. I would also say that the motherboard is too expensive for this price range; however, you would most likely get a pretty solid overclock with the midrange Asus board you chose. Here is what I would personally recommend:
