CS is ridiculous. CS: Source still has quite a few active servers. I imagine orginal CS still has active players too.

1.6 is still active, just not a lot of straight forward english servers. I think my brother started his own server for about 6 bucks when we had a bunch of people jump on.

I still play Source. I tried to go back to 1.6 (because hit detection in Source is ****, comparatively), but I couldn't stand looking at it. lol.

I actually think 1.6 looks a lot better than Source. A lot cleaner and smoother and what not. Also, gameplay is 1000x better. Lots of people still play it, yet, more than CSS actually.

The gameplay is better, but it's a bit of an eyesore. I struggle to play it for long enough to adjust.

Microcenter should make that very doable. I would have to look at the parts (too lazy to do atm) but that should be very doable and you should be able to get a good computer out of it.

microcenters cpu+mother combo would run you about 300 depending on what cpu you get. i7 since you'll be doing some adobe stuff and it'll render **** faster with the i7.

Not a bad PC at all, but I wouldn't go to Microcenter for everything. Just the CPU/Mobo and RAM (if they give you a package deal for the RAM - I think they do with the one you picked). Although I'm not sure how you found that video card for $315??

On the case, if you're getting a bargain case, do some shopping around. The 210 isn't awful, but the HAF 912 is probably the best in the sub-$70 market for cooling and fitting everything easily. Not that I particularly care for the aesthetics of CM cases (I do not).

on second thought spend that extra cash on a cpu cooler instead of using the crappy stock heat sink.

i have a pre filled liquid cooling one that ran me about 60

but heres a dif one

The Evo is pretty standardly recommended as a baseline upgrade over stock cooling. An especially good idea since AMDs run hot.

Yeah, apparently I had gotten into an ESO weekend beta and by the time I realized it the thing was over. Oh well. I'm really not that interested in ESO to be honest.
