Hi , I am planning on buying a computer to play dayz and was wondering what settings i could play it on and what fps i'd get?

Here are my specs,

AMD FX - 6350 Six Core CPU ( 4.2/3.9 ) ghz

ASUS M5A97 (DDR3, USB 3.0, 6 gb/s

8 gb Kingston Dual DDR3 1600MHz

2gb Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 ti boost

1 TB of memory

450 watt power supply.

Thanks.

dayz is weird, and possibly poorly optimised. my 580 will get 60fps at quite high settings, unless there is a helicopter flying overhead, at which point it will drop. I've flown over others and had them drop from perfectly playable down to 10-15fps. but at the same time it's only using 30-40% of the CPU, so the bottleneck has to be elsewhere, either network or memory.

You'll certainly be able to get generally playble FPS on Med-High, I was on a 470 which is similar to the 650ti boost and it was playable, I've given that card to a friend and he's struggling, but no obvious bottlenecks other than his broadband is slower. So if you hit none of the unidentified bottlenecks you'll be fine.

thanks, im a noob when it comes to computers, its my first time building one and i just want to make sure i can do what i want with it.
Can you explain what bottlenecking is to me though?

The 650 Ti Boost should be between the 560 ti and 570 in terms of performance, and taking into account 13thmonkey's results, you would have an idea how it would run for you

Best solution

bottlnecking is simply that one component slows down another component, i.e. the cpu isn't fast enough to feed the gpu, or the gpu isn't fast enough to cope with the cpu. There is ALWAYS a bottleneck somewhere, don't worry about them, if you improve the bottleneck then the whole system performs better, and the point is that in a particular game a certain component might be more likely to be the bottleneck. In dayz it is just weird however.

But you'll get decent results with your build.
