The lights are on
To put this simply, I want to play DayZ, but don't want to waste money on a game if my computer can't handle it. My knowledge of Pc's is extremely limited, so please don't bash me if I make myself sound dumb.
I've checked the system requirements online and everything I have is above the recommended specs, except the CPU, which is an Intel i7 quad core (i think) 2ghz. From what I read, I would want to be pushing at least 2.80ghz with my CPU.
I've read in various forums that I'd be able to run the DayZ mod, but I wanted to ask a online community that I trust.
Sorry if this isnt the right forum to post this in too.
Need way more to go on than that. I dont think they made a 2ghz i7, the lowest i think was 2.6 ghz. (other than maybe a laptop version). We also need to know how much memory (ram) you have and what GPU.
You can also try this. www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri its not 100% accurate, as it does not know how much of your system is being used up by background programs. If you are right at the minimum or just above I would stay away from it.
We're sorta like 7-Eleven. We're not always doing business, but we're always open.

I have 8 gigs of ram and my gpu is a nvidia geforce gtx 460m cuda 1.5gb. The sticker on my computer says my CPU is an intel i7 2360qm @ 2.0 ghz. I have an Asus gaming laptop, so maybe that's why is 2ghz?
I also checked my computer with that site and it said I could run it above the recommended specs, so I'm probably good then?
ahhh that makes sense a laptop. Yeah they use lower clock speed chips in laptops to reduce the heat generation. I would guess that yes you can run it on mid to lowish settings. But be warned, the game is poorly optimized, their are no guarantees.
The good news is ARMA 2 is an older game, if you are patient and watch sales (steam, amazon and such) you can probably buy the combined operations version for around $10. (to run Day Z you need both the base ARMA 2 and the operation arrowhead expansions, both of which are in the Combined Operations).
The goal of the game is to defend your base and survive the enemy assault. The player starts out with a single fighter craft which he controls with keyboard and mouse. Rs goldand Runescape gold are the best things . As the events progress he also gains access to defense turrets, tactical structures, allied crafts and different upgrades.
