At what video resolution? The higher resolution the more GPU power you need to drive the display....

I've got a system running a single 5870 and I can run 1600x1200 BF3 on high and BF4 on medium (or High, but I have to turn down the anti-aliasing settings a bit..).

The problem on BF4, it really wants to see 2Gb of RAM on your GPU, anti-alias eats up video RAM (you can use MSI Afterburner to display GPU RAM usage to prove this out)

Also, I've heard BF4 wants to see more than 4Gb of system RAM, I've got 8Gb your at 6Gb so your likely ok too....
NOTE: your system has "dual channel" memory. At 6Gb you have 3 DIMMs this odd number will put your system into "single channel" mode, which is slower. Adding a 4 DIMM (2Gb stick) will "FIX" that for you and speed up your system.

Ok. Total pixels between these two resolutions is very close, only 8% difference. So, you should be VERY similar FPS as I do. I get 60 to 100 FPS on BF4, my monitor syncs at 85 Hz/FPS (yeah, very old CRT, odd...). Your monitor almost Certainly syncs @ 60Hz/FPS so you should be able to up the settings just a bit over me....

- 1920x1080 (2,073,600 pixels)
- 1600x1200 (1,920,000 pixels)

Not sure about DayZ (don't own that one yet...)
