  1. Im new to pc gaming and I don't know much so just stick with me here
    Specs:
    Intel core i5-4590 3.3GHz quad core processor
    Msi h81M-p33 micro at lga-1150 motherboard
    G.skill ripjaws x series 16gb (2x8gb) ddr3-1600

    I can't speak for the price as I'm in a different country, but while it's a couple of years old it's still a good card just above entry level performance (between the 460 and 470). It'll play anything and everything you ask of it.

    The CPU is also good.

    Yes, anything you fancy.

    I'm not sure what you're asking, but it'll run ARMA III fine.

    Do you have any preferences, such as color or dust filters? Or front panel access on the side, front, or top?
