Hey guys, I've been looking all over but I cant seem to find the solution to my problem.

I'm looking for a PC within the price range of 750$ that can run most all games (mostly Dayz and Bf4) on high settings with good frames.

(Preferably if you could get it below 750$ price range it would be greatly appreciated)

If you guys can recommend me the components for a build I would really appreciate it.

What I'm trying to do is gradually get the components instead of saving money and getting it all at once.

this can last you for 4 years


So is this the cheapest it can be to run these games at high settings? could it be a lower price or is that the cheapest it can be?

Thanks btw!

That power supply is awful. You'd be lucky if it didn't explode. The build overall isn't very well balanced.

This isn't quite as fast, but it's overall much higher quality and not likely to break, unlike AliRidha's somewhat broken suggestion.

Thanks! So What kind of frames do you think I would get on games like dayz and Battlefield when running on high settings? Also is that the lowest price or do you think I could trim it down some?

There are some changes that could be made to cut costs, but the money saved would be minimal. If it was just Battlefield 4 I would recommend an AMD CPU, but DayZ practically needs an Intel CPU to run at acceptable framerates.

As for framerates, it's anyone's guess about DayZ. It's in alpha, and doesn't run consistently yet.

In BF4, you should get around 60 fps on high or 45+ fps on ultra.

Anyway... These changes wouldn't really noticeably hurt performance, but the money saved isn't very much either, and there are minor losses to storage space and upgrade potential.

Ok Thanks dude! And when I mean Dayz I mean the MOD haha. So if I get this build most high end games should run exceptionally well?

I will probably get this build but I wont get it all at once, I will gradually buy each thing.
Thanks So much anyways!

That really depends on what you mean by exceptionally well; some people think it's not good performance unless they're at 60 fps 1440p or something.

But, at 1080p, that PC should be able to hold ultra settings at 40+ fps in anything out right now. Watchdogs will probably push it the most, other games will be easier. Games that are no longer cutting edge like Skyrim or Mass Effect 3, etc, would run on ultra at 60+ fps.

Ok yea for me its kind of hard to tell the difference from a 40+ fps to a 60+fps, given that I have never really played with those kinds of frames. So upcoming games like Battlefront, do you think this build could handle those games?

It's a relatively powerful PC, so there's no reason it shouldn't handle them. But it's impossible to say exactly how it'll work out until a game actually releases.
