Hello I am looking for a gaming pc that will play Arma 3, Arma 2, Dayz standalone, Battlefield 4, Etc. At about medium settings, 40 or higher fps, no lag, and a budget at about 1000-1200$ Actually I might be able to build it but I need practise
 

 

Laptop or Desktop? Desktop, Want something reliable

My budget for the new computer is: 1000-1200 cheaper is better 

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Gaming mostly, Web browsing and maybe a little beginner programming  

What software do you intend on using on the computer? Mmm... Google Chrome, Steam, A few other gaming programs, Music Software, Mail, Recording games, etc.

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? Arma 2-3, Minecraft, Roblox lol, Battlefield 4, Dayz standalone, And few other smaller games  

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? It varies  

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?

Will you be overclocking? No...?

Location for online shopping/shipment/prices? Anywhere really trustworthy that you've had good experience with

How many monitors are you planning to use? One most likely

Do you need peripherals? OS? Doesnt really matter just specify when you recommend it to me

Any particular reason why you are upgrading? My computer that I use now is a Mac thats about eleven years old and doesnt even run steam anymore

 

Thats pretty much it thanks for any recommendations I really wanted to get more into the gaming community with this computer

Oh and I am also wondering if the Digital storm Vanquish 5 can run that stuff?

Do you need peripherals? OS? Doesnt really matter just specify when you recommend it to me

 

Peripherals cost money, so in case you need monitor, mouse, keyboard etc, budget for other parts gets lower. Budget is large enough luckily.

 

Buying from USA?

Buying from Canada, Dont bring the mouse keyboard or monitor into the recommendation. Do you know if the Digital storm Vanquish 5 will handle it?

There http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/Br7MP6

 

Add case you like and it's almost 1200$. Cooler was no available so I switched another.

 

I never recommend any pre-built machines. Always prefer to select components.

I cant build it myself, so I will see if a store near me can build it but you cant recommend a pre-built gaming computer? Because if i have to have someone build it its going to be more $ And do you know if the Digital storm Vanquish 5 can handle the job?

I thought you said you are able to build it yourself. Pre-built computers are OK in case you can select parts. So parts I recommended + someone builds PC with them is OK.

 

http://www.digitalstorm.com/vanquish-5.asp

Non overclockable CPU, bad motherboard, slow memory, probably bad PSU, small and bad SSD. GPU is somewhat OK. Hard to recommend that.

 

Arma 3 is badly optimized game so GTX960 is not enough for it. Still better than Arma 2 and Day-Z. Both are total crap when talking about optimizations. In case you want to play Day-Z with good quality graphics that runs smoothly, I recommend that you wait at least 10 years. There's not much you can do with hardware when software s*cks.

I thought i could build it but it is to complicated to do it myself. I am not that good at computers. (at least building them) And really want something that can play those games and something I can do various other things it will probably take 1-2 years for me to buy it and I wanted to have something that I was saving for so I could regulate the other things that I am spending $ on. I really wanted a pre-built computer but it sounds like that wont work? I will ask the local shops about building them, And making there own computers. My friend got a super-computer (Not exactly a super computer but close enough) from a local shop for about 3000$ I think, And I cant spend that much money, And I dont need a super computer, Just a computer that can handle all that stuff, The cheaper the better! I was really hoping this site could help.

Pre-built computers always have low quality components. Some components are OK, but those that have only generic description (like 500W Power Supply or 120GB SSD TLC) are usually cheapest possible. That's why I never recommend them. Local shop may be good choice here. Ask and post their offer here?

 

Vanquish 5 is still acceptable quality, have seen much worse. But it has no match for my build. Also when buying pre-built computer with no selected parts, problems will arise when thinking about upgrading. Anyway if you really want pre-built computer, cheapest Vanquish 5 is not catastrophic choice. So get it if you don't want to ask offers from local shops or have no other ideas about pre-built choices.

 

Arma 2 and Day-Z engine (both use same engine) is just so bad that it runs very poorly, no matter what system you have. There's video from Day-Z on high end PC

 

Very poor graphics run very poorly. Arma 3 is at least little better. So that Vanquish 5 (and my build also) will have problems with those. Battlefield 4 should run fine.
