How's this build sound? (Can I Run DayZ?)

Alright! So, I am buying a new PC soon, and came across this. I was just wondering how the PC sounds, and how it would run DayZ Standalone, DayZ ARMA 2 Mod, Arma 2 and Arma 3? If you could give an estimate of how many FPS at ______ settings, that would be very much so appreciated! This most definitely wont be the only games I play, but they will most likely be the most intensive games. Thank you so much!

  1. good build ! and should see above 60+fps on high settings for all the listed games apart from dayZ at the moment but thats due to optimization of the game it will improve over time even at that i would only expect the odd frame drop
  2. So, I did good? :P How do you think it would run on medium settings whilst recording?

    yup :) and depends if your using fraps then i would expect 50-60fps mid to high settings...actually you should be able to record on high with about 60+ fps
  4. Haha! Sweet. I've been at this all day. And I went under budget on it too. It's price is about $1515.

    yeah i know the feeling man, was underbudget on mine by about £200 after a good 4 months of research and following price drops...enjoy your build !! :)
  6. Thanks man! Will do. I'll be purchasing in about 3 weeks!
  7. No need for 16gb of ram. 8gb will be plenty for gaming and even streaming.

    Are you overclocking? If so, you'll need an aftermarket cpu cooler. I would recommend the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. It's inexpensive and performs very well. Also, I would consider looking into a new motherboard. The G41 has horrible VRM heatsinks. The VRMs tend to overheat even if you don't overclock. Something like the Asus Z87-A would be a much better option.

    You don't need 750w. 600-650w is plenty. The XFX 650w is a good choice.
  8. Alright, I'm keeping the PSU. So, how would this be? Swap the Mobo for Gigabyte GA-Z87-HD3 -- 2x PCIe 3.0 x16, 4x USB 3.0, 6x SATA-III 6Gb/s. And the RAM to Ripjaws 8 GB [4 GB X2] DDR3-1600 Memory Module. Would it keep the same performance?
  9. I would try to go for the Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H, ASRock Z87 Extreme4, or Asus Z87-A. Those are the lowest Z87 chipset motherboards that I would recommend.
  10. The GA Z87X Doesn't support 2x Memory.
  11. Well, thats what I am getting on IBuyPower. I'm taking this build onto the website to make sure I don't screw anything up, and it tells me that motherboard doesn't support 2 ram slots.
  12. What? ALL motherboards support 2 ram slots. Are you actually buying from iBuyPower?
  13. That why I was a bit confused. I most likely will, yeah.
  14. I was about to get a maingear pc, which is what those specs were from. It was prebuilt, and was very nice, and cheaper then what I could get from using IBuyPower. But it doesn't have any alternative motherboards to chose from. Nor a watercooling system. :/
  15. Alrighty, so I fixed the build to the best of my ability! So, will this be pretty much the same performance as the original?

  16. What is your total budget for the tower?
    Why do you not want to build it yourself?
    If you are completely certain that you'll rather buy it prebuilt, which I would never recommend over DIY, then are you willing to use other custom websites?
  17. Budget is trying to stay under $1700 with shipping and OS. I don't have time to build a PC and would rather just have the security of warranty ETC. I would be up for using other website, but I will haveto stay with ones with good reviews.
  18. wrong link. Here's the correct one: http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/saved/1FRBTM
    I can't believe how expensive this is going to cost. If you build it yourself, you can get all of this for ~$1000. Not only that, but you learn to diagnose computer problems instead of having to talk to customer service.
  19. Not everyone is going is able to build a PC. Yes it's known it's cheaper but some people pefer to pay the premium and get it built by other people also I would recommend the 16gbs of ram because by the sounds of it you want to record videos which requires a fair bit of ram
  20. Thanks realchaos! So, how do you estimate that build would run those games?
  21. It should be able to max out anything at 1080p.
  22. May I ask a quick question? Is it just the G41? Will the Z87-G45 Be fine?
  23. The MSI Z87-G45 Gaming board is decent.
    But that build is pretty bad.
    -Horrible quality case.
    -Un-necessary i7 for games.
    -16gb of ram is overkill.
    -That Maingear CLC will perform poorly. I suspect that it has a good chance of leaking.
    -The R9-280X uses the shitty reference cooler.

    It's definitely not worth $1,700, even for a pre-built.
  24. What do you mean with the 280x?
  25. That's the Video Card you included in the build...
  26. Yeah but the one listed at maingear.com uses the shitty reference cooler. It's still the same card, but it's using a different cooler. The reference cooler of the 280X is REALLY REALLY bad. It will run very hot and still be really noisy at the same time. The one I listed has better cooling.
    The one at CyberpowerPC gives you the option to use the HIS IceQ cooler which is much better than the reference cooler.
