    Awesome build, i was wondering about different games such as ARMA or DayZ, would it have problems running them as I play them quite frequently. Cheers

      Cheers mate,
      Arma 3 and DayZ will run smoothly on this build without any problems, the GTX 770 can handle them both at max settings.
      Any performance issues you may encounter are most likely due to the fact that DayZ is still in early access therefore parts of the game are still development.
      If you’re planning on buying any of the components please use the links on our site as it really helps us grow.
      I hope this helps! 🙂

        Thanks alot, helps me so much. What if i downgraded to a GTX 760? Would the games still run smoothly? Sorry to be a pain.

          Are you AnAdoptedLemon on YouTube? This was the exact same question asked on the same build, I’ll copy and paste my response below.
          Nothing will change dramatically, the frames rate that you’ll get in the high end games will drop by a little bit, but it’s not enough of a drop to stop you from playing most games at max settings at 1080p anyway.
          The ASUS GTX 760 has literally just gone on sale today at the lowest price it’s ever been, so you’re in luck!
          Here’s a link –
          Again if you’re going to be buying any of the components please use our links as it really helps us grow, also don’t worry about asking questions it’s fine to ask if you’re unsure about anything!
          I hope this helps! 🙂

    Haha yes, sorry, just in a rush to build a new one, recently my PC has gone downhill and finding your YouTube has been great help, you know what you’re talking about compared to many others. I play Arma quit frequently with a group and my PC is slowly becoming lower so need an upgrade. Thanks so much for your help, your videos are awesome 🙂

      You’re welcome!
      Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it. Best of luck with your build and hopefully you’ll get back to playing Arma 3 with your mates in no time! 🙂

    Would the AMD FX8350 Black Edition 8 Core Processor still work fine with this build.

      Hey Leon,
      According to MSI’s website, their 970A-G43 supports up to the FX-8320 so unfortunately the FX-8350 will not work win this build.
      I hope this helps!
