The most graphically intense game that i know ,crysis 3, you can get 50 fps average so that means 50+ for a lot of games

OFC you dont need things like the cooler or SSD or blue ray... so just take those out for the OS.

Could i upgrade it in the future? Like i said before. I'm a complete computer noob. Also could it run games like Arma 3, dayz, and other games like those?

Upgrades include:

1) Upgrading to the FX-8350 2) Upgrading to the R9 290X 3) Upgrading to 8GBs 4) Upgrading to the H75 cooler to better overclock the FX-8350 5) Upgrading to full on SSD. Honestly I dont know why people hype over 1 TB drives... a 240GB SSD would do. 6) Upgrading the Power Supply. To around 600W with both the CPU & GPU upgrades. 7) Upgrading the Motherboard to something thats not crappy.. I mean this will get you by sure.. but something around the £60 would be nice once you hit that £700 point. getting something that supports both 3.0 USB AND Crossfire should be your go to.

plenty of options :D
