What's the best Gaming Desktop for playing/recording/uploading Arma 3 and DayZ?

I don't know anything about computers I would love to build one but every time I see a video of how to, I literally can't understand what they're saying or what the things they put in it does, to put my knowledge in perspective I bought a MAC thinking it's best to play PC games, yea not that smart. But anyway I'm not getting anymore consoles and I would love to put up videos when DayZ standalone and Arma 3 comes out without running into any problems like overheating, fps drops, lag issues, exc so if anyone can help me with this that would be fantastic.
P.S. Sorry if you run into this question several times I'm having some trouble publishing it.

    Preferably something under 600 USD but if that's to little I can wait a while and save up to get the best.
  3. Arma 3 and day z are very very hard to run without fps drops, with that budget it would be impossible. Save up till your at atleast 1000$ or maybe more for even better results

    Ok, when I do have that much witch shouldn't be any longer then a month or two what computer do you suggest I get, and if fps drops are unavoidable then what computer will keep it form dropping to much?
  5. Can you build a computer part by part? that is by far the best way to go if youre plan is to buy a prebuilt computer then your going to need to save even more. I would get an I5 3570k with a cooler master hyper evo 212 2x4gb sticks of 1600mhz ddr3 ram a medium priced z77 motherboard, a gtx 770, any full atx case you like a 650-700watt power supply either seasonic corsair or antec. A 1-2tb HDD and you should be fine without having noticable drops at all. With this setup you can easily overclock the cpu with the automatic overclock settings in the bios and have even more performance which will help in those games

    Awesome, thank you I'm going to feel like a moron asking this but what's overclock and I'm guessing an operating system is like windows 7 or something so any suggestions for a good one.
  11. id just get windows 7 home and save some money. Overclocking is when you set the processor to run faster then it does out of the box to get even more performance out of it. It used to be only for people with a very good understanding of how but with new motherboard they have automatic settings that overclock for you when you tell them to making it basically one click and youre overclocked

    Thank you so much this really helps.
  13. Yeah the 770 runs my Arma 3 on ultra/very high. But I would get 2000mHz RAM and an i7 over i5 if you have the cash.
  14. Currently I use ibuypower because there really good. You like customize them and they make it. They have lots of sales to for cheap prices but with a computer you need an monitor any monitor from 22-30 inches are great. Good luck take my advice. If you want I'll give you my email and I can help you pick one out
