Will this gaming PC build run DayZ on Ultra or High Settings?

Intel i5-4690 3.50 GHz
HDD: 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 7200 RPM HDD
HDD2: 120GB Samsung 840 EVO Series SATA-III 6.0Gb/s SSD - 540MB/s Read & 410MB/s Write
MEMORY: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory
MOTHERBOARD: MSI GUARD-PRO ATX w/GbLAN, 2 PCIe x16, 4 PCIe x1, 3 PCI, 1 x M.2, 6x SATA 6Gb/s
POWERSUPPLY: 650 Watts - Corsair CSM Series CS650M 80 Plus Gold Certified Modular Ultra Quiet Power Supply
VIDEO: * NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB GDDR5 PCIe 3.0 x16 Video Card

Should I swap the CPU with an i5-5670K instead?
Do I need to increase the PSU Wattage to a Corsair 750w 80 Plus Gold?
What frames will I be getting in DayZ with these specs?

Thank you for your help.

  1. Can i ask what is your budget?
  2. Roughly around 1000-1200 USD. I'm currently looking at pre-built even though I know it's worse to do. I just haven't got the time to build a PC.
  3. Best answer
    I would recommend building one yourself because you get more bang for the money
    and prebuilts always have a downfall like all good but a bad PSU,GPU,CPU and things like that
