Gaming pc to buy for Day Z, project zomboid between £400-£600

  LemonIsNoob_ 15:37 28 Feb 2014

Hello everyone, I am looking to buy my very first gaming pc, and i would like it to be easy enough to use due to the fat i am not very tech savvy when it comes to the ins and outs of computers, i would like it to be able to run Day z, project zomboid etc on medium - high settings, without any choppy frame drops, i would like it to be able to connect to my wireless internet for obvious reasons. I think my budget would be £400-£600 nothing more than £600 including upgrading the RAM for example because my friend told me standard is 8, but i should go for 16. I would love to hear your advice everyone. Here are two sites i believe to be trust worthy so if you could pick out the best from either of these or your own preferred sites without confusing me with the many details ( you might need to dum it down aha ) available in the UK it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much, site links below

Hello there, Thanks for the reply! i already have a razer mouse and have a monitor. it would include a keyboard and operating system like windows 8 i guess? and doesn't the RAM hold the memory for stored and installed games?

However the hard drive is rather small by todays standards at 500gb,id upgrade to the 1tb for the extra £9.50

At Dino Pc for example, if i bought the destroyer, and wanted a wireless internet card and selected it, would they build it in for me? ( stupid i know but i would rather ask ) also when it is in, would it work the same as internet on my laptop? just select the wireless point and enter the hubs password and there you go?

If you click on customise on the dino pc,add the 1tb drive also theres a list of wireless cards they will fit the total price is then calculated at the side of the spec

Stick to one thread please theres little point in opening another and id advise as Mechkb you could pay a little extra for a larger psu add it in the customise section,it will probably bring your total over £600
