I'm looking for a PC that will run dayz pretty good and is already made. I would be willing to do a build if it could play dayz between 50 and 60 fps. thank you. This will be my first PC although i do know a little about them i certainly can not pick all the right parts. I heard some parts can be incompatible. I don't really do anything else on my PC right now but play games it a very old laptop. I would primarily like to play dayz,skyrim,minecraft, and a few other games. Thank you.

Best solution

This PC can easily play nearly any game on high settings at a smooth 60fps, or maybe on ultra at 45fps or so. For the money, this is a very powerful PC. This will be much more powerful than any prebuilt machine you can get new for $600, however keep in mind that DayZ isn't very optimised at the moment, so you're not going to be getting 50-60fps pn high settings unless you have a much more expensive machine, however this PC should still be able play things like battlefield 4 on high at 60fps, same for many other games, and DayZ will still perform quite well at about medium settings.

The R9 270 can be easily overclocked to be just as good or better than the R9 270x,
The motherboard is a very high quality ASUS board that's very good for overclocking.
The CPU cooler allows for a very good overclock, you can probably get to around 4.5GHZ.
The HDD is a high quality WD Caviar Blue, this is one of the most reliable drives on the market.
The PSU is a high quality XFX PSU, on of the best PSUs for this price range.
The case is one of the very nice new Spec cases from Corsair, these are very well built and have room for up to 6 case fans with 2 included, so you have plenty of room to upgrade the case fans in future. The case also comes with a nice window to display your build.
The memory is very good quality Team Vulcan memory, which can also be overclocked.
If you have the cash to upgrade in future, I suggest adding a 120GB or 250GB SSD.

Do you know how much it might cost to take the parts to a shop and have them build it.

Completely depends on the shop, however most would probably try and charge a huge amount, because most PC repair shops are running a big scam.
Basically most people have no idea what parts are in a computer or how it works or anything, so they assume it must be incredibly hard to build/fix one, so they're okay with paying somebody $100 to add in... say, a new graphics card, when the graphics card itself only cost around $40 and it only took somebody around 20 minutes to put in a new one. They could easily learn how to put in the graphics card themselves in around half an hour, gain a new skill, and save 60 bucks.

Point being, building the PC yourself is a much better idea, it really isn't very hard, you might find it fun, and it only takes a few hours, plus it's very easy, even with no technical experience. There are plenty of guides on the internet to help you.
