    Well, I'm gonna be on later so can join the hunt. I want to get Tom too! Had him in my sights, should have took the shot.

    We've got a new base now in the usual spot with some gear so can fast track you there with a chopper ride?

    Sounds pretty good! I don't even know where I am.. Vidora I think? :P
    Haven't seen anyone for a while, just hiding in the corner of a shed when I logged out.

    At least you don't need Antibiotics this time.

    I'm south of Maruko so will prob head south to Calamar on foot. I'm sure Carbon can oblige with a lift.

    I know, the sniper helped me there I suppose.. 2 hours and no anti-biotics.. can never find them when you need them.
    The guy got a free Alice Pack though

    Well there are now five of us playing on a Lingor server, I think you need to get back in it!

    @DMcGuigan - Pack should be easy to find. Get geared up then we can do a 5 man strategic sweep of Calamar and the surrounding area. We have enough fire power.

    Or we can do 4 man with air support overhead.

    Either way, should be enough to make people think twice about attacking us or hanging around the area for too long.

    I hate all of you. I really want to start playing DayZ but don't have a laptop or PC with enough beef to run it well. I really don't have the funds to buy or build one either being on a apprentice wage! Booooooooooooo

    To be fair, my PC is borderline for running it. I really want to upgrade as it's almost 6 years old now.

    What kind of spec is your machine?

    I was ripped off when I brought this, however I purchased this before I had any real IT Knowledge, but hay.

    Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    AMD Turion II Dual-Core Processor P520, 2.3GHz, Level 2 cache 2MB
    4GB DDR3 (2x 2048MB) RAM
    500GB SATA Hard Disk Drive 7200rpm
    LightScribe SuperMulti DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support
    HP TrueVision Webcam with Integrated Digital Microphone
    Integrated 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN
    802.11 b/g/n
    Bluetooth wireless networking
    5-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader for Secure Digital cards, MultiMedia cards, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro or xD Picture
    15.6in diagonal High-Definition LED HP BrightView Display: 1366 x 768
    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 Graphics
    Sound Altec Lansing speakers

    Plus my Internet Connection is poor and probably wouldn't help in terms of playing DayZ but hopefully that will change soon.

    I have a duel core AMD too and DayZ is very much playable for me.

    Without spending cash on the full copy of AMRA2 (in case your machine cant quite run it), why not download the Free to Play version of ARMA2?

    Arma 2 free - Arma 2 Official Website

    Arma 2: Free (A2F) redefines the free-to-play battlefield with its truly unrivalled scale and gameplay possibilities. A2F serves up almost everything offered by the original Arma 2 - the '13th best PC game of all time', according to PC Gamer [1] - minus the campaign, HD graphics and support for user-made addons and mods.
    It will let you see if ARMA2 is playable without you having to spend a penny. If it's not, no cash wasted. If it is, you can get full ARMA2:CO and join the DayZ fun.

    I was on a similar wage when I got mine, takes a while to save enough, but it really is worth it!

    Still running everything at Ultra.. could probably build my spec for around 700ish peripherals not included. Monitor was the priciest thing on the list for me.

    AMD Phenom XII 955 Black Edition @3.2GHz (stock)
    Asus M4A87TD EVO Motherboard
    2 x 1GB ATI RADEON HD 6870 GFX Cards
    8GB Corsair XMS3 1333MHz RAM
    850W Corsair Silent Gold PSU
    1TB HDD @7200 RPM
    Coolermaster Centurion II V5 Case
    Cyborg V7 Keyboard
    Cyborg R.A.T 5 Mouse
    Steelseries Siberia V2 USB Headset
    Asus Sonicmaster MX279H

    Could also try Can You Run It, see what it says.

    Well fingers crossed I'll get a fully paid "ICT Technician" Role soon as my apprenticeship ends in less than a month! Eeek! Hopefully when my employers offer me a decent wage and keep me on I'll be able to save for a while and get a decent setup.
    @DMcGuigan your setup sounds pretty darn sweet. Is there any major difference between AMD Black Editions and an i7 for example? I mean major performance differences? Or is it more a personal preference? I'm new to the PC Gaming scene if I'm honest. I've been a PS3 man for a while. But considering selling it or switching to PC.

    Plus that is a big list of people you can download Arma II Free from. Any suggestions for which one to go with without getting hit with a nasty?

    They are all mirrors for the same thing. However this one is a direct download so may be worth using:
