DayZ upgrading

hey there, im a bit of a noob when it comes down to PC specs so i was wondering if someone could give me a little bit of help, I really want to play the Arma II mod DayZ, ive been thinking of upgrading my current PC, but my little noobish brain tells me alot of my Specs aren't worth upgrading. if someone could suggest a course of action, ideally ide llike to play medium-high specs and would have a budget of £600-700
