DayZ Computer Requirements

The system requirements are quite high, and a gaming PC with a new graphics processing unit is required for successfully running DayZ. GeForce GTX 1060 or better GPU is needed.

12gb is a high amount of RAM, which has to be taken to account when choosing a computer. 8gb is enough if you only want to meet the minimum requirements.

Also, note that at least 16gb of hard drive space is required, which has to be noted if you install many games.
