Can I Run DayZ Standalone
I currently have an AMD fx 4100 and a AMD HD Radeon 7950.I was wondering what sort of settings i should be playing on to get the optimal amount of FPS and what fps i should actually be expecting to get.Also ,does anything need to be upgraded,is the CPU holding me back?
The CPU is weaker on the charts than the video card, you can probably run the game at high settings as your system at least meets the recommended specs. http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/CYRI/Requirements/dayz/11404
The 4100 is not a bad CPU, it's just not as good as the recommended low end gaming 6300 one. If you can overclock or change the CPU you'll get more speed from your system, the 7950 will handle a faster CPU.
I would go for something higher than the 6300 over the 4100, you are really only going up one step, unless you can overclock the 6300.
You can see the comparison here http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/293/AMD_FX-Series_FX-4100_vs_AMD_FX-Series_FX-6300.html
If you were buying a brand new CPU for a new system, I'd go with the FX 6300, since you already spent the money on a 4100, it's not really worth it as an upgrade. If your motherboard can handle an FX-8350 and you can afford one, that may be a good upgrade http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/304/AMD_FX-Series_FX-6300_vs_AMD_FX-Series_FX-8350.html http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/300/AMD_FX-Series_FX-4100_vs_AMD_FX-Series_FX-8350.html
Another option is to overclock the 4100 if you want more performance, may work out well and may be just the cost of a better cooler for you.
