Hi, I'm trying to build my first decent gaming PC but don't want to screw up... Is this good for a PC to run a game like DayZ on medium to low settings above 30 FPS? I would like to keep the price under $600. Thanks for your help! http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Wontohn/saved/Kvm323

do you already own that GPU? because its not accounted for in the estimated price.

I realize that... If you know of a good one can you tell me or just add it? I also remembered that I have a windows 8 OS already so that drops the price. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Prj2bv

so is your budget $600 without a gpu meaning your looking for one? and is your windows 8 copy 64bit?

And yes I'm looking for one. I would like the total price to be under $600.

i apologize for being just a tad over budget but this gpu is much better than the 250x you were looking at..

i went with a slightly cheaper cpu that will still get the job done to boost the gpu a little. this setup will defiantly run most games at mid range "lag-free" (above 30fps).
