I need to run DayZ on medium - high settings, and Minecraft on Ultra Settings. I'm just worried that an Acer is going to break easily. And not knowing too much about computers, I just want to know if I can run those game on my requirements.

The biggest problem with the Acer Aspire V3-771G-9875 is that it comes with a 17.3" 1600x900 display.

15.6" 1366x768 and 17.3" 1600x900 displays make things onscreen large, and tend to be low-tier LCD panels that have very poor image quality due to low contrast.

----------------------------

You can get the HP DV6t with the GT 650M, 15.6" 1920x1080 display, and Core i5.

HP DV6t (i5-3210M, NVIDIA GT 650M, 15.6" 1920x1080 matte IPS display) - $824 + tax after coupon code NBQ1148

- You could more than likely get away with downgrading the CPU to a Core i3, since most games will be bottlenecked by the GT 650M before being bottlenecked by the CPU.
- Worthwhile upgrades: Backlit keyboard, Larger or faster HDD.
- Don't upgrade memory on the configuration page, because it's much cheaper to do it yourself if you need to upgrade it.
- Don't downgrade the GPU to the GT 630M or Integrated Graphics if game performance is important to you.
- Don't downgrade the display to 1366x768. The HP DV6 generally should not be bought in any configuration that includes the default 1366x768 display, unless its larger text is required for eyesight-related reasons. 1366x768 resolution in a 15.6" display makes things onscreen large, and 15.6" displays that have 1366x768 resolution tend to have very poor image quality due to low contrast.
- Remember: Apply coupon code NBQ1148
- Note: This laptop is not for you if you are an Audiophile
