I know absolutely nothing about computers, so this is probably a retarded question. Can you buy a computer with these specs or will I have to upgrade it and whatnot?

What is the best way to go about buying a computer for gaming? Not a million dollar system, just basic needs. Phone Post

These are very low specs requirements. I'm sure an average $400 new PC can easily run this game. Phone Post

Cryptic - Here's a guy who's been playing DayZ for a couple months now and he does commentary for each session.


 that is a old vid, all you start with now is a backpack, bandage and painpills, people were camping the beaches and killing respawned players for their weapons and gear I believe so they removed them, good vid though

Isaac298 - Yesterday was my first time playing with my buddies. I spawned right near him luckily and he knew the map pretty well. He knew where to find the ammo, find the guns, and where our next objective was, A helicopter crash...giddyup.

We make our way to two deer stands, and jackpot, I pick up some sort of AK with 2 magazines. We make our way to the crash site which is guarded by our other buddy. As we're going there we find a 3rd Deer stand and decide to clear out the area before we scavenge like a bunch of vultures. Then hell breaks loose, I miss a couple of shots because of some weird graphics glitch and zombies come from behind. They break both my legs and then they eat them. I can't stand, My vision is blurry and i'm slowing my buddy down. I want it to end, I yell over skype "TAKE ME OUT MAN, I"M SLOWING YOU DOWN." No he says we're going to survive he says. I yell "Don't be a fool, DO IT." With a savage yell he takes me out and i magically am reincarnated as a woman.

On to round two!!!!

 lol, that is awesome, if you guys are on later let us know, we can hop on a server together

 no keyboard controls are the best once you learn them, a= left, s = back, d= right, w= forward, z=prone, x=squat, c=stand, mouse is used for looking around, firing and inventory system.

The more I read you guys posting your stories, the more I'm glad I don't have a computer than I could play this one.

I'd waste WAY too much time playing this
