I asked this question before, but there was a lot of back-and-forth. I simply have no idea what I am doing in terms of PC builds. First things first, I am not only going to be playing DayZ. I just feel as if it is the most systemly-intense game I will be playing. I am looking to be spending around $1200 USD, and it needs to include the OS. I already have the keyboard, mouse, monitor ETC. I would rather go down the Intel route. If you could help me design a PC, that would be greatly appreciated!
Also, with the build, if you PLEASE could, estimate the FPS I will get at Low-Medium settings on Arma 2 DayZ mod, Arma 3, and DayZ standalone! Thank you SO much!

It's a bit hard to say... On Arma 3 probably 50 FPS in very high, so on low medium expect to go much higher. On DayZ Standalone it's a bit harder to tell...

So, I should be able to record it on medium-to low settings at a decent FPS?
