I don't think you'll be able to get high. Although it depends on what resolution you're running. If it's 1650x1055 or below then it should be okay on normal.

i get alot of lag when doing huge missions with 100 v 100 something wondering how i could get better fps

does anyone else get lag with more than say 150 something people shooting?

games terribly optimised imho






Radeon HD5870 1GB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card overclocked slightly

Core i7 930 8MB Cache Socket 1366 overclocked to 3.4ghz

Asus P6X58D-E Intel X58 (Socket 1366) Motherboard


6gb ram

This game has done terribly to optimise textures, but is alright (just) with processing power.

You have a nice processor but your G-card could improve, so i recommend reducing view distance and texture + object settings. If your ceating your own mission, add some fog to it (at least for testing) - it greatly increases the fps :)


I have the same processor as you, and it's water-cooled. I really want to OC it but every tutorial I've read about OCing is quite complicated, and I definitely don't want to damage my processor because of a silly mistake I made. Since you have the same processor, could you breifly explain how you did it? I don't need a 3 page essay, i should be able to make sense of it xP - Don't feel you have to though :)

If life's worth something, sell it :-P

Yeah, the thing i can not stand about Arma 2 is that the graphics. No not the actual graphics because those are great...too great! I was actually hesitant on buying ArmA2 because i knew the graphics and system requirements were way too perfect. (concentrating too much on visuals then the actual game play if you ask me) So i have a Sparkle SP94GT1024D2LHP GeForce 9400 GT Video Card with 1GB and it runs pretty great. Sure i had to spend some extra cash but it was.........well...whatever I'll stop there *JOKINGLY*

I'm planning to get an AMD Phenom II X4 965 and Radeon 5770. With Asus M/B and DDR3 ram etc.

Considering that you were happy with your old system with ArmA 1. I'm sure this will satisfy you perfectly with ArmA 2.

Corsair DDR3-1333 4GB

Can you post a link to this RAM. I have M4A785-TD evo motherboard... With the amd 965 processor. I have problems with my memory. My system is very unstable and will often lock-up unless it's underclocked to 1066Mhz.

Quite the subjective statement, that one.

I would go for the ATI 6870 over the 5850

Check and make sure you ram voltage is set correctly in the bios for your sticks.


I would go for the ATI 6870 over the 5850. Faster, cooler, uses less power, and is even cheaper than the 5850.

Added 8 minutes later:

# W.I.C.K.E.D. : Actually, quite a fallacy. You ever consider you were running all that shiny new stuff on a 7200rpm drive devildog? You could of added it to your old hardware and there wouldn't of been a considerate performance boost. It was a combination, of new hardware plus the ssd, being whatever you had prior to the ssd was capping your performance. Here is an equation for you. I have a phenom II BE @ factory 3.1 ghz, 9800gt, 4gb ram, and typical 7200 WD hard drive. Almost the same exact system Thoma111 has, difference being his gpu is one step up from mine, and his cpu is one step below mine (aside from the lack of L3 cache on athlon II). I installed two 10k raptor drives in raid for the OS, Arma 2, and OA alone. No considerate difference in performance...only minor. So you are misleading this kid by telling him that an ssd will give him the boost he needs. Ssd are new technology, meaning an above average failure rating, and overpriced. They do have lower RAT than raptor or velociraptor drives, but when 2 (10k sata) are in raid they are comparable on certain levels.

DevilDog actually stated that he tested it with his traditional HD after the swap and saw a negligible difference. I did the same as well. I had ArmA installed on my Phenom II 955 GTX 260 and changed to my i7 920 GTX 470 SLI and saw a nice increase to 65fps. Now that i have my SSD installed I get a solid 85fps in the benchmark. So it can infact make a difference.



BTW, buying an i7 is not pissing in the wind. Buying an i5-750 is pissing in the wind when you can spend $30 more on a X3440 xeon and smoke check most CPU's out today. AMD can't keep up at the moment. And I am an AMD fanboi.

Just go to this website and test and even if you cannot run it on that website, OA still works for me and i failed both (Damn CPU and processor)

Hey guys, I'm building a new computer after 5+ years... right now i'm able to play the OA demo 1060x738(windowed) @ normal /w aa off, af off, shadows off, pp low & vis @ 1000. I'm running a pent4, 2gb ddr1, 4670agp and a 160gb ide drive at the moment.

I'm buying Combined op's within the next couple weeks, along with a new system. I was wondering what I would be able to play at with my new system(which is still in the works...Researching, I'm on a super low budget)

The system I'm looking at right now are:

Asrock M3A770DE AM3 770 Mother Board
AMD Athlon II X2 250 3.0ghz
Mushkin 4GB DDR3 1333mhz
MSI Geforce gts 450 1gb GDDR5
And Western Digital Caviar Black 640gb HDD

Also I'll be playing at 1280x1024(Old Dell LCD monitor)

Would there be a "BIG/GREAT" improvement over getting the AMD Phenom II X2 555BE over the Athlon 250?(Theres a 30-40$ difference, and I know there's a slight chance of "unlocking" cores on the phenom)
I'm asking this because I'll be playing Arma2 until it dies.

No clue/help at all on AMD/ATI gear but you might want to set aside an extra bill and upgrade to a GTX460 (1GB)...that'll double your bus width <and that alone is worth it.

Well a GTX460 is more than half my budget, so that isn't an option.

How well can I run it with these specs?

XFX HD685XZNFC Radeon HD 6850 Video Card - 1024MB, GDDR5, PCIe, mini-Display Port, HDMI, Dual DVI

Intel H55TC Motherboard & Intel Core i3 540 3.6Ghz Processor Bundle

4GB DDR3 Memory

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

NZXT M59-001BK M59 Gaming Mid Tower Case - ATX, mATX, Baby AT, Black

Ultra LSP550 550-Watt Power Supply - ATX, SATA-Ready, SLI-Ready, 135mm Fan, Lifetime Warranty w/ Registration

I'm hoping for High settings. The thing that worries me is the Processor since its a dual. I'll be playing the Undead mod alot too. I do not plan to overclock.

I do not have the game yet, but I have done some of research. To my some what knowledge of the performance side of this game, It likes very fast cpu's(3.5ghz+), fast hard drives(raptors/ssd's), and lots of ram.

And by fast cpu's I mean fast multi-core cpu's at over 3.5ghz, i've seen a athlon II x2 250 @ 3.7~ghz and was able to play @ 1920x1080 with normal settings & 3500 vis, and achieved over 30~fps average and never went under 18
