Anyone know a lot about gaming computers?
Can anyone give me an appraisal for this computer?
I want to get a PC to run DayZ with some friends, and a guy wants to sell this to me but I have no idea what its worth
Here are more details
1055t 6 core AMD, oc'd to 3.3ghz, cooler master heatsink
500w power supply
too lazy for a pic, but it looks like that, I might have a non lit fan if you want that swapped out.
HDD is about a year old, but very low usage.
hd6950 and cpu heatsink were purchased 2-3 months ago and may have been used ~2 weeks.
the cpu/motherboard were great for the time I used them, I just wanted an upgrade for 3d modeling.
I have a win 8 key I don't use, so I'll install that.

No help here but good on you for DayZ!
Also if you've never used windows 8 you're in for lost of swearing

decent graphics, but not stellar either, I've had nothing but bad luck with AMD gpus so I'll admit I'm biased against their graphics cards.
you need a minimum of 8 gig of ram to be able to game, most people would say 16 these days.
that is an older cpu as well, so it might not really be worth the hassle it could bring you as well... I have a feeling he wants more than it's worth

My dad was an Nvidia man, so I kind of grew on that. Never much liked ATI/AMD.

This is what I was playing Arma2 on and when I'd play wasteland I would a very low frames..

AMD Phenom II Black Edition X4 965 *** the card you have listed has a better score on cpubenchmark.net
Cooler Master V6 GT
Nvidia GeForce GTX460 SC *** the card you have listed has a better score on videocardbenchmark.net
Asus Xonar DX
TRENDnet Wireless N PCI Adapter TEW-643PI

Charts that I am getting data from:
PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End
PassMark Software - Video Card Benchmarks - High End Video Cards
The differences between the cpu is 4,269 to 5,058 ($145.00/$196.69) *the 1055t being better
For $139.99 you can get a AMD FX-8320 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8320FRHKBOX

AMD FX-8320 Eight-Core have a score of 8,098
The differences between the gpu is 2,664 to 3,179 ($143.03/$469.99) * the hd6950 being better
For $409.99 you can get a EVGA GeForce GTX 770 DUAL SuperClocked 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card 04G-P4-3774-KR

GeForce GTX 770 have a score of 6,208
I don't think I would buy the computer for more than $500. Look at it this way.. the HD 6900 series came out at the end of 2010 and the HD 6990, the last card of the series, came out March 2011. The 1055T came out in 2010 as well, and the last cpu of the Phenom II series came out in 2011. This computer is 3-4 years old and if you were to take the same money that was used to build that computer and used the money to build a computer today it would be a beast compared.

That's basically a solid three year old system with a one year old video card. It should run DayZ just fine. If there's really any weak point in it, it'll be the processor. The video card in particular is very good and should be able to max out most games providing it isn't bottlenecked by the cpu.
I'd say a fair price would be about 400$ assuming its in good working order.
Anecdotally, I've owned about a dozen video cards from both ATI/AMD and Nvidia over the last... 15 years? In my experience both vendors make quality hardware, neither has significantly more driver problems than the other.
