Hi! I'm planning to build a pc and wondering if this will be enough to play DN on its highest setting w/o graphic lag.
Proc: AMD A8 KAVERI 7600
MOBO: MSI A88XM-E45
GPU: AMD RADEON R7 250X 1GB GDDR5
RAM: GSkill Ripjaws X 4gb 1600 cl9
I'm planning to add another 4gb ram in the future.
Given this set up and a decent internet will I be able to play DN on high setting?
As my experience, first I should ask if this is already pre-built or did you just canvass it (part by part)? And can you also provide a budget and your place? Where do you prefer to buy? Ebay? Amazon? Etc?
For me, I would suggest go for Intel chips instead of AMD chips. 1 reason is Power Effiency since AMD chips are power hungry unless you can pay for your bill it.
If you will go for AMD build, make it at least A10:
AMD A10-7870K Godavari Quad-Core 3.9 GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD787KXDJCBOX Desktop Processor Radeon R7
I would suggest don't get a Video Card first and test the Built-in R7 Graphics and prioritize to maximize the RAM to 8GB with 1600 frequency since Built-in Video Cards is sharing memory from the RAM. Then if you think that the game isn't really getting a good fps, then go buy the AMD R7 video card.
If you're going to the Intel way, get an i5 4th gen. Then get a new motherboard which supports Intel Chips.
Then get a 1GB or 2GB NVIDIA GTX 600 or 700 series for a Video Card because the Built-in Video Card of Intel is crap (Intel HD 5000) when using DN. 4GB RAM won't be an issue since you'll be using a dedicated NVIDIA video card but it would be recommended to get a 8GB RAM.
Also do note that:
1. Get a SSD, it'll enhance your PC's performance! At least 256GB, then get another SATA HDD as your back-up drive.
2. Make sure your PSU (internal power supply) can manage to provide power to all the devices. At least around 600W and above and don't use GENERIC PSUs!
3. Use Windows 8/8.1 or 10. It's faster than 7.
4. Make sure that your Cooling System can manage to fix overheating issues.
