Hi, I am new to pc gaming and this is my first build. I was worried about the graphics card. is there anything better I could get for 90-100 pounds, or would this work fine, or if there is anywhere else on the build i could improve on that is weak. Also could you tell me what performance I would get on dayz mod and standalone, like what setting i could get and the resolution i could run it. Thanks in advance! Also i have a hpl1706 lcd monitor. I hope i dont have to get a new one but please tell me if I do! (Sorry for all the questions)

Also if there any good games out there i should buy!?
(Also I am buying this off scan.co.uk)

    try to keep AMD builds with 2 sticks of ram... they really dislike single sticks; well that much is true if you plan to do any overclocking anyway.

    other then that, you got a lot of power into a little bit of $$. looks nice.

    if you want to spend a little more to get a LOT more performance, here is

    yeah... um... you'll want a better monitor soon. that build you posted will max that monitor no problems... but really its time to drop 100 on a new 1080p deal. or at least get a 1600x900 one for 60-80...
  7. Ok thanks.
