Back of the Box
DayZ is an open world survival horror video game mod for the 2009 computer game ARMA II and its 2010 expansion pack, ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead. It has been widely praised in the game media for its innovative design elements, with Kotaku and Eurogamer describing it as possibly the best zombie game ever made, and PCGamer saying it was one of the most important things to happen to PC Gaming in 2012. The mod was responsible for putting the three year old game into the top seller charts on Steam for over seven weeks, spending much of this time the top selling game, and is responsible for over 300,000 unit sales within two months of its release.

You might just be able to get 30 fps on the lowest settings, but expect that to drop to about 10 when you are in big citys such as cherno

Start by getting rid off that graphics card if you want to play any games above 800x400 at ultra low res. You have a great CPU its a shame your getting held back by your GPU get at least a GTX 660 or GTX 760 then we can talk FPS.

Well, depends on your resolution you're playing on, but say @ normal = 1366 x 768, 1440 x 900 (no AA), you'll have a good chance to play flawless (enough) on low graphics settings as long as your RAM isn't running @ 0MHz/MT/s ;P

I'd almost say "Definitely!", especially because of your native resolution, but watch the AA settings; is FXAA 8x the max. or?

There's a chance, because your RAM and CPU by far won't bottleneck you and @ 1366 x 768, the GPU doesn't have to be stressed that much, so without (too much) AA and maybe without ambient occlusion, yes…
