I am new to PC building. I am trying to build a low-mid gaming machine for DayZ mod and standalone. It would be nice to keep the cost down on the initial build because I have to buy Case, CPU, Mobo, GPU, Ram, PSU, OS, Ram, Everything basically. ( Have keyboard, mouse, Monitor.
Ability to expand 2 years down the road would be nice. But not a high priority.
I have decided (still open for suggestions) to choose AMD Phenom II x4 BE 965 for the CPU. Decent reviews to play dayz on medium and its less than 100$.
GPU (again open for suggestions) Was thinking 7770. But I honestly have no idea. Brand, Manufacturer, Ghz, GB.. No clue.
Mobo No clue. I am guessing something that can fit the Phenom, and PCI 3.0?
Remember, I dont need amazing visual graphics. But I would need decent fps, and smooth gameplay. I am at the start of this build and will take any advise.
