Hi. I would like help to make this build so I can play the popular game DayZ(mod or the coming standalone game) mid to high settings(I don't need it to be 1080p just so the textures can be regular so I don't have a hard time surviving against zombies or people) and I'm on a really tight budget BUT I only need the tower. I already have a good monitor(like I said I don't need it to be 1080p so i have a monitor LCD that is 1360x768(I think. I'll edit when I get out of work), I have a new optical drive(ihas 424 that I just bought), a 500GB drive sata, a keyboard, mouse and I have an OS already. I have this built from PcPartPicker but I just need to know which MoBo to choose or if the build that I already did its not going to handle the game easily.

Like I said I didnt add the things I have OS,Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse,SoundCard(I dont think I need one) and the MoBo because thats the one Im missing cuz I dont know which one to choose. Also, is the video card able to handle the game mid to high settings?(possible high?).

Also I'll add the How to ask for a new build just in case xD.
--------------------------------------

Approximate Purchase Date:Christmas or sooner maybe.

Budget Range:I calculate with only the tower and maybe if the parts are correct $450 Before / After Rebates; Before / After Shipping

System Usage from Most to Least Important: gaming(DayZ or other games), Movies(Maybe HD?), Youtube, surfing the internet

Are you buying a monitor: No

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, ncix.com(never used this but I would use it if it is cheaper xD)

Location: City, State/Region, Country -Eagle Pass, Texas, USA

Parts Preferences: none or the ones you guys recommend.

Overclocking: No. If is not needed or maybe in a distant future xD

SLI or Crossfire: No. same as overclocking

Your Monitor Resolution: 1024x768, 1280x1024,1360x768, and 1366xXXX(dont remember the last ones think is also 768)

Additional Comments: Mm nope just that remember that Im really in a tight budget for just the tower.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading:My current PC is a small factor and it doesnt have the capabilities to upgrade(if you need to know which one i have is the eMachines EL1300. It doesnt have PCIe x16 even though my MoBo has the soldering points there or the "label" like if they were going to add it but they decided to not do it.

Also sorry for all this long text and my grammar/spell checking/errors, Im from US but I lived all my life in Mexico and I just started studying here in US. Thanks in advance and I'll wait for your answers.

Bump again so anyone can help me and also I forgot to mention. If the case is bad for that build I would like another mid tower case because I dont have space in my room for a full tower. Thanks. and help please xD.

PS: For DayZ I would like to put on settings the longest distance possible. so the 6850 can handle that? Thanks

Hi Thanks for the answer. Would that PC be able to play DayZ the mod and when it is released the standalone one?. Does the MoBo and Case comes with USB3.0? Also any recommendations on what to buy first or should I buy the parts all in one go.Thanks again.

bump so I could have more choices even though Im almost decided to djangoringo build but just waiting his response to if DayZ standalone would be playable in that build because I read that the standalone would need a 4 core cpu.

It is playable @1360x768, it will run great dayZ, BF3 on ultra and recent games on high settings with the i3-3220+7850 1GB.

The mobo comes with an header, the case not i don't know if your gonna need it.

Well I would like a 3.0 but if its not posible then not. But the MoBo doesnt come with usb 2.0 headers so I wouldnt have a front usb then? And thanks for your answer men. Really appreciate it.
