More details please? What other games do you want to play? Do you do a lot of streaming or video editing?

Also do you care about overclocking?

I went for the Pentium G4560 because it is WAY cheaper for only 10% less performance then the next best CPU you could get ( i3-7100 / i3 6100 ) http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Pentium-G4560-vs-Intel-Core-i3-7100/3892vs3891

Which requires a Skylake chip, so you'd either have to own one, borrow one, or have a computer shop do it for you.

The g4560 is going to bottle neck that 480, But it's a god idea if you pretend to upgrade to a i5 later.

In csgo people care about it because some people say that it helps them hit shots.

I think it stems from the fact that some calculations are done based on frame rate rather than constant rate.

I agree with that. Even if you can hit 300+ fps but only have a 60hz monitor, you're only going to see 60 fps. Although I agree with geekmonster in the sense that people use it as an excuse. They think "Oh, I have 300 fps so im going to hit my shots better"
