Looking for a gaming computer to run games like dayZ for under $900

I'm looking for a gaming pc under $900 that can run games like dayZ at a good fps, no lag, and good settings. I made a build and I wanna know if it could run dayZ on medium or high settings and if I could improve the parts I chose for the pc to make it better and still be under $900. I made 2 builds and I wanna know which is better and if they aren't good enough and if you could fix one of the builds and still keep it under $900 please do it!

    Changed your cooler and PSU (assuming you are sticking with only one graphics card - 450w should be more than enough) Put some extra into a better graphics card and less on the cpu itself :)

    Also I am not sure how good that case is airflow-wise. Take a look at Corsair of Fractal Design models around the same price
  2. So how will it run DayZ
  3. That build should be able to run DayZ on high settings on full HD and easily be over 30fps :)
