Default Will my build be better or worse?

So I run CSGO happily (locked at 101, unlocked I get around 150-250) on my build with a Celeron G530 2.4GHz and a HD5750 1GB, and my friend says that his build AMD Phenom II X2 555 OC 3.8Ghz + his HD4750 can run better than mine, he probably can since his CPU has a better cache and speed.

But the bottom line is that my mate says that I can run CSGO perfectly without any drops (I don't get any drops with smokes/etc, he does) with my Celeron and his 4750, can I really?

My card recks his, according to gpureview - http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards....=580&card2=616

I can also run (with stutter, probably CPU bottleneck) BF3 on high/ultra (although 30fps) on my native res 1440x900, I suspect that he wants my card to play bf3 on his machine since his can't handle it properly.

Any thoughts? I highly believe I'm better off with HD5750 and that his 4750 is just **** and his CPU helps him a lot.

His CPU doesn't help him out that much.

Your setup is much better.
