I just threw this together thinking it might be a solid build for DAYZ, Arma 3.. If you could change anything to make it run better for the same price please help edit it for me. thanks so much!

I would definitely switch out that power supply for one that is both better and cheaper. Try one of these.

And then, in the interest of running better, put the money you save there into a better CPU cooler. These are both pretty good.

Thanks should that run everything? even with the lower power?

Your estimated wattage is 498. A 650W PSU that is 80+ Gold certified will run at minimum 87% efficiency. This comes out to about 565W minimum, giving you some head room for fans or extra hard drives or whatever down the road.

The main reason to get a higher wattage PSU would be if you're thinking about Crossfire down the line (or some other power hungry expansion). But 650W (with a gold rating) should be fine for what you have here.

What resolution are you playing at and are you only going to be gaming. You dont need the thermal paste or CPU cooler because that CPU comes with both.

He's definitely going to want an aftermarket cooler for the 8350. They run quite hot with the stock cooler even without overclocking.

He had a stock cooler picked out for like $10

I personally wouldn't trust a $10 cooler to protect my $180 processor. Especially with good quality coolers from reputable brands available for around $30.

Gaming. But i want to keep the eight core to future proof it.
