In our previous two gaming PC builds, we had great budget gaming PC build at 500$, which would provide around 200-250 FPS for CS:GO, and a perfect overall gaming PC build for around 1000$, which would provide optimal (around 300) FPS at CS:GO, and would support most of the games at high settings.
It’s obvious that now-days, every gamer wants to have perfect gaming experience, at high video settings and a great FPS for any type of game, so we decided that it’s time to create a MONSTER!
This build, would cost around 1500$ with perfect balance between the components for that amount of money, which would perfectly support the newest games with high settings. We don’t opt to go above 1500$ price-tag, simply because the following configuration is more than adequate if you are an passionate gamer, and you want to have the best gaming experience.
No matter if you want to play CPU-heavy or GPU-heavy games, this configuration would be perfect in both cases. For CS:GO, it will provide beyond perfect FPS at any resolution and settings. It will be especially great for Overwatch too.

We chose the i7-4790k, because on the latest single-thread performance testings, it proved to be the best CPU and showed the best results. It has great 4.0Ghz base clock speed, and more so, it has turbo-boost up to 4.4GHz. Also, this CPU is considered the most optimal one for CS:GO and it is providing the best results.
The gaming gear that we suggested along this configuration, is the same gear from our previous build. We picked the best peripherals for gaming purposes.
- The BenQ XL2430T monitor is one of the best 144hz gaming monitors, and is one of the most used monitors by CS:GO pro-players.
- Razer Deathadder Chroma mouse is perfect one to have for CS:GO with a lot of improvements over the old Deathadder. You can check our REVIEW .
- Sennheiser GAME ZERO headsets are widely accepted as the best gaming headsets at the market, and they are THE most used headsets by CS:GO pro-players. Check REVIEW
- Corsair K70 RGB keyboard is a complete bad-ass. Top-notch design and durability, great RGB lighting and variety of options for customization. Check it HERE
That would conclude our build, we believe that this is the most optimal build that you could buy for around 1500$, which is great for any type of game. If you are into gaming, and you want to upgrade your current PC, we hope that we gave you a perspective. Also, we strongly advise to upgrade your gaming gear if you don’t already have one, so you could enjoy a better gaming experience.
