Hello, After watching numerous Day Z videos on youtube and becoming fascinated by it I thought I need to play. So I looked into buying a computer then thought of building, and heard building was cheaper and that this is the site to get help.
So if I had $1,000 what would be my best options for building a gaming pc fit to run ARMA II/Day Z smoothly and enjoyably?
I don't know much about building PCs (that's why I'm here) looking for suggestions and recomendations. Here is a build I thought looked good.
That's a great build already, I'd go with the Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 so have lost of options in terms of upgrading for the feature. I would go with the current generation cards as they're much more powerful and consume less power.
Yeah i.e. a HD7850 in your budget.
Yeah, my 7850 eats up Arma II Combined Operations at 1920*1080, highest settings on everything except for AA, I get around 60+ fps.
