I'm looking for a good pc build to play DayZ Standalone on medium to high settings

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ULTRA-FAST-Quad-Core-8GB-1TB-...

Scroll down to see the specs^^ and are they decent specs to play the game?


Or suggest a custom build that I could buy?

I would be not be able to recommend anything this cheap. I'll compare it to a i5 4440 cpu it's overall perforamnce is 25% lower than the i5,
Features XOP instructions, Allows simple overclocking,
but you would expect that from a cpu which cost half the price.(£89)
the case is low end, so is the PSU (£50 for both)
it's worth the price tag
the HDD/RAM are fine, but does not say specfically which type would say (£100 for both)
Mobo (£58) quite good for the price
GPU performance is slightly worse than Intel HD 4600 and only very slightly better than previous Radeon HD 7560D.
here is a review of the GPU http://www.game-debate.com/hardware/?gid=1788&graphics=...

It's a good price for the parts but not the best for playing DayZ, a game known for poor optimization. would not recommend this build.

My budget is any build up to £350 and preferably something I could upgrade as I go, any suggestions?

£54 DDR3 (not DDR5) GPU not great since it's old tech,
If you went with this option you would have to change the GPU ( can not add another since the mobo does not support dual GPU's) since it's a low end mobo (£33)

£350 is a small budget but lets see what we can do :)

This link show a 6 core AMD cpu with a solid mobo, I have added a GPU which is a bit better than the GPU's from your previous options, but since the mobo has CrossFire Support
you can buy another GPU of the same type in the future.
Top RAM modules. and since most of the compponents are all uk based and free delivey it's a total of £400 I know it's over but with a great cpu/mobo/RAM which will last! I hope you like it

ps this is an ssd for future upgrades

Just saying that your posts do not work due to you just copying and pasting a link that will lead everybody to their own Amazon cart.
