Can this build run Arma 2,3,Dayz standalone and bf3 and 4?

Hey guys, I want to build this pc but i want to make sure it will run newer games like arma and battlefield with high fps:

CPU-AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor
Motherboard-Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard
RAM-G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage-Crucial M500 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive,
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
GPU-Sapphire Radeon R7 260X 2GB Video Card
PSU-Silverstone Strider Essential 400W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply
Case-BitFenix Shinobi ATX Mid Tower Case.

My budget is $1000 could go a little higher.

  1. Well if you've got a $1000 budget you're better of going with an i5 4670k cpu and a z97 mobo. Also change your GPU to a r9 280 or 280x. The 280/280x will run most games at their highest settings. Would also look at getting a 550w or above PSU. Aim for tier 3 or above http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html
  2. I have the same processor and a weaker GPU and it runs those games maxed out. If you're playing the standalone version of DayZ and not the mod then expect bad performance, at it's current state it is really unoptimized.

    Yeah i wasn't really planning on standalone at the moment but what fps do you get on average?

    This is the cheapest one I'd look at. I can show you some more if you're willing to spend more. This is a great mobo however

    Arma and DayZ SA are both CPU intensive so you're going to want a better CPU. Battlefield is GPU intensive so you'll probably want a better GPU. I don't know if you want to overclock so i put both options. I would probably drop the SSD and get a better GPU, as the SSD won't add anything to gaming performance, just load times. But I put in options with or without anyway.

    OC w/ SSD
    PCPartPicker part list 2

    non OC
    PCPartPicker part list 3

    non-OC w/ SSD
    PCPartPicker part list 4
  7. Thank you i might go for either 1 or 3. I dont really need SSD so I'll just drop it. I'm not really sure how to overclock though i might have to look into it.
