Default CS 1.5 OG to CS GO newbie...what should I know?

So about 13yrs ago I stopped playing CS when I couldn't perform any better due to limited funds and crappy internet access. Now that I've been watching E-league on TV, its sparked my interest about getting back into CS. I see CS GO is the latest version and is light-years ahead of where I left CS back many moons ago. So now I've got the time, funds, internet access, etc to be somewhat competitive I'd like to look into starting back up with it.

Starting from scratch, what would you suggest doing? I assume I have to at least purchase CS GO online and play via Steam as previously.

I've got a 2015-built non-gaming PC with Windows 10. Good enough graphics card and cpu/memory to easily run CS GO. Still got my Razer laser mouse too.

Thanks for your time and thoughts/opinions!

if you never played cs source then this will be about the same as far as movement and hit boxes go. Hit boxes in CSS were a joke, head shots were a walk in the park. CSGO has a feeling more like cs 1.5/1.6. However the rifle and pistol spray patterns are way off now, the randomization of the ak and m16 are heavily randomized now with multiple variations making spray shots alot harder to predict.

^Good to now!

So now that I'm looking closer at the spec of my home PC, the 1.9GHz dual core processor supposedly won't cut it for CS GO. So now I'm looking into a "budget" gaming PC. Been since 2004 since I built my own; however, I'm not afraid to attempt it again. But for the $500 price tag, I've seen several good out-of-the-box gaming solutions. Decisions decisions.

you want a cheap effective gaming computer? I have enough computer parts to put together 2 gaming computers.

one is a lesser 2.4GHz quadcore with 4gb of ddr2 ram, another is a 4GHz quad with 16gb of ddr3 ram and plenty of overclocking headroom if you want that route.

PM me, Im moving soon and need to clear shit out

Man, just when I think things are going my way, I get kicked in the shorts! The gaming PC will be hold for a little while, as I continue getting unexpected medical bills from my wifes back surgery. Yay!
