Our very own Gav having a cheeky CS:GO session. I did try to prewarn Logitech that he was likely to get banned

Every CS: GO player knows that in order to become a CS: GO sensation, you have to be skilled at the game, and have to get great items from a CS: GO case open on But something that a lot of people overlook before thinking of getting into the game is their PC. Even though CS: GO isn’t the latest game, it still requires a good PC in order to play. So, what do you need to be able to play CS: GO? Here is what you should have.

1. Good FPS

FPS is short for frames per second. Basically, it shows you how many images your computer is able to produce every second. If you don’t have a good FPS, then there will be a lower frame rate, which will make the animation stutter. This is why you should have higher frame rates, to make the animation much smoother. You should have at least 60 FPS if you want a nice performance.

2. 15 GB Free Disk Space

Believe it or not, but CS: GO will ask you for quite some free space on your disk if you want to install it and run it smoothly. You will need 15 GB free disk space, so if you have an older laptop that doesn’t have enough space, you will not be able to install and play the game.

3. Good CPU

You will also need to make sure that you have a decent CPU if you want to play CS: GO. Any dual-core CPU should work nicely with CS: GO, but you may still want to get a more powerful one, especially if you want a wonderful performance. For instance, for 60+ FPS at 4K or 1440p, you can try an R3 2200G for the minimum requirement, but you should still upgrade to a better one. The same one will also work for a 1080p resolution or lower.

4. Better Resolution

If you want to play the game at its best capacity, you will need to use a laptop or PC with a good resolution. If the resolution is low, there will be fewer pixels and less space as a result. Meanwhile, a higher resolution will show more detail as there are more pixels. So, get yourself a higher resolution if you intend to use your skills to the fullest and become a pro.

Final Thoughts

You can play CS: GO, but only once you have a decent enough PC for it. Before you open the CS: GO best case, make sure to get all of the things above sorted.
