Get a Lenovo W520 or W530, if you look around a bit you should be able to find something at your price or close to it. Don't buy a cheap laptop then look to upgrade it past hard drive and RAM, you are likely to waste time and money fiddling with it and can just end up with a dead system if you do something wrong during the upgrade or stick a faulty used CPU in the system. Or something with a 940M video card may be available in your price range and will be enough for CSGO on lower settings.
