Amd atholon II x3 425 and Radeon hd 4650

I'm wondering what the best video card I can but with this processor. I already have a game PC I just want this one to be one friends can play on when they come over. Mainly looking to run dayz.
What I said is my opinion.

Just buy the best one you can afford. Sure your CPU will be a bottleneck, but you'll still get a performance boost over a cheaper card.

It'll run it, late game turns will take an eternity though. They can take 5 minutes on an i7.

Every modern card will be bottlenecked unless you get some crappy low-end GPU that can't even run modern games. So just get a GTX 770 or whatever and don't worry about it.

There's a slight chance you can unlock the fourth core on that CPU

I'd say 750 would be a decent fit.
