You can't really build a laptop, similar to a desktop PC. For instance, you have to buy a laptop with a Nvidia or AMD GPU built-in (if you want better than standard Intel graphics). It can't be added by yourself later. You're looking for a "gaming laptop". New gaming laptops start at about $800. For your price range, you'll need to find a used gaming laptop. Here's a list of csgo specs that may help you: http/www.logicalincrements.com/games/csgo. It's for desktops, so you'll need to look for laptops with similar level of parts.
