Let me first start off by saying i just started getting into pc gaming and I'm alittle confused on some stuff. I'm currently playing DAYZ a mod for Arma 2. But my frame rate stays between 10-20 and thats it (usually around 10). So what do I need to do in order to improve the frame rate?
Most likely its the GPU.
Upgrade to something a bit more modern and powerful, the HD7850 is a great card to pick up right now with its recent price drop. Its around $210 on Newegg and should play DayZ quite well.
Sapphire HD7850. $210 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
So what do I need to do in order to improve the frame rate?
Lower the resolution to 1280x720 by right clicking the desktop and clicking screen resolution. Then lower the resolution. If you want the game to run ate 1080p then buy a new gpu. I recommend the 660ti. If you want a cheaper gpu buy the 560 ti.
