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

That build should be able to run DayZ on high settings on full HD and easily be over 30fps :)
