Hi everyone,

I know nothing about PC’s but looking for a build that will run DayZ on ultra setting. A little bit of future proofing wouldn’t go amiss either.

thanks in advance

What resolution??

1080p ultra build.

My basket at Overclockers UK:
Total: £1,056.10 (includes shipping: £12.30)


You will need to add a ryzen 5 5600X for £329 instead of the 3700x (its only there as a placeholder) as if DayZ is a bit more cpu intensive.

You could also change the 1660super for a 3060ti when they are avaialble and tht will boost the graphics ability a lot for about £420 (so another £160 over the above total)​

What resolution are you playing at??
60hz refresh or faster?

I have changed the above build to reflect your budget,

Not exactly what you mean here.
The 3060ti is a bout 85% faster than the 1660 super i quoted in the build.
The different models of 3060ti will all have slightly different cooler/ clock speed and rgb lighting. Look for a decent warrenty if you have no preferences over particular brands or pick one on the asthetics you like.

As curiousTomCat said the ryzen 7 3700x is last years tech. I didnt try squeezing a 5800x into your build as its over £460 and that is almost a third of your budget alone!!!! The 5600x will be up to 19% faster in almost everything over the 3700x (depending upon game and resolution)

sorry didn’t explain myself clearly, I wondered what the difference in brands were and you have explained this so thank you.

I have been tweaking some of your build and think I have something that is slightly over budget at £1600 but will do everything I need and more.

At a £1600 budget I'd be looking at 1440p 144hz with a RTX 3060ti minimum, is the monitor included in the budget?

No the monitor is not included. I have taken the above suggestion of the Ryzen 5 5600x and 3060ti.

You guys are awesome. As the cooler is out of stock may be easier to change. Any recommendations?
