Are you asking if Arma series will run on it? It should but you will probably only be able to play on high settings with potential lag, you can probably run it smoothly on med settings. I have the same Graphics card and I can play on high settings, just not "Very High" but that is why I am updating my Graphics Card. *THUMBS UP*

@ wyte_out
ya i figured it would be cutting it close. i am probably going to buy arma 2 co as it turns out so i will probably get a new cpu then i think i should be able to play on high settings i hope.

@ no quarter
thanks lots. the socket info was actually very helpfull and made it very easy for me to look up which cpu i want to get.

maybe some opinions on my soon to be new cpu.??(Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E8600 @ 3.33Ghz)

Okay, so the AMD Phenom x6 1090T Black Edition apparently wasn't compatible with my lame Acer motherboard which only supports 95W CPU's, not 125W...

I'll guess ArmA II will have to wait until I build a new gaming rig after summer. I still don't understand how the game can perform so badly on a decent rig.

Hi, I bought ArmA II: Combined Ops off of steam last week, and have been fiddling with the settings trying to find a good mix between quality and performance. However, so far I've been unable to achieve either.

My computer is an Asus N82 JQ, with the following specs:
Intel i7 CPU Q 720 @ 1.6ghz
Nividia Geforce GT 335M
4gb of ram
windows 7 home premium 64bit edition

I've been running the game with a 1366x766 resoloution, with texture detail at normal, and all other settings at very low. It is playable, with between 20-25fps, but 15-20 in urban areas.

I'm running it with -winxp in the command line to default to dx9. I was hoping that I could get a better performance from it. If you have any suggestions, or links to what has worked for you, I'd appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.

Well your specs look fine. The only problem I see is your CPU running at 1.6GHz. I had the same issue with my Arma game. The best advice I can give you is upgrade your CPU to at least a 2.6GHz or higher. How new is your Graphics Card? I am not familiar with that certain card. It sounds like it might be quite old, you might have to upgrade that. But I would start with your CPU, in order to run this game you will deff. need a better CPU. A 1.6GHz does not cut it. I had a 1.8GHz and my game was laggier than ever. But I know if you upgrade your CPU you should be off to a very, very good start. *THUMBS UP* *OK*

But it's a quad-core processor, I don't understand?

Anyways, the graphics card is fairly good.
http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-335M.24060.0.html

Both so far have let me run any game at medium-high settings. And it's a notebook, so I can't really upgrade it.
Thanks again for any help!

Well than all I can say about all that is...Well your computer is deff. Not meant for gaming. Sorry, Arma 2 is just not any game. It is a very demanding game on your computer. So if you do not have a good computer than the game wont run well. If you wanna run games on a notebook I would suggest either investing in a Desktop/building or just dealing with the fact arma wont run on it.

haha, okay, thanks for being blunt. I guess I can deal with the lo-fi graphics until I can afford to update my geriatric rig. One final question, did you or anyone notice a boost in your own game's performance from patch to patch? Maybe I can take solace in that . . .
again, thanks for your help.

Yes, that -product support- is one area where you can always depend on and hold out hope for.
There was substantial improvement to the base ArmA II (w/ release of v1.06) when :OA was rolled out, solving alot of the problems that users with mid-level specs had with it. :OAs v1.54 was the most stable revision so far (v1.57 has had mixed reviews) but if you follow the beta process or read the changelog for the Release Candidate v1.58, we should all be expecting better performance with the next patch...which shouldn't be long now.

IF you don't know much about graphics cards (or video cards) for new guys

ATI Radeon HD 5870 or above
is the best but that's my personal opinion

on the ATI Radeon HD 5870 i can achieve the following

visibility1600:
terrain details:VERY HIGH
object details:VERY HIGH
shadow details:VERY HIGH
tecture details:VERY HIGH
AVERAGE FPS:36.0
MAX FPS:53
MIN:18
AA: NORMAL AF:VERY HIGH
Resolution:1920x1200
but thats just for playing i can really push it to max out all settings and mosts times it will have average fps

At 2560x1600 i also found Arma II playable on the Radeon HD 5870. i had to lower the visibility slider to 1200, but were able to have texture detail, video memory all at "Very High." i found that i had to lower terrain detail, objects detail and shadow detail to "High." This was the only video card to provide playable performance with great image quality in the game at 2560x1600

I had a GeForce GTX 285 once that card has a really bad performance rating so DONT GET THAT IF UR SERIOUS ABOUT PLAYING ARMA

Sorry if this is an old thread...

Can anyone tell me quite what it takes to run this game at max settings? You see ever since I have been playing ArmA and then ArmA:2 OA + BAF + PMC I have been trying to build a system that will really monster this game. I thought that with my last build it would finally do it... Set everything to max and look at an amazing scene, as I play. I was wrong! Yes I can set things so it looks very nice and plays well but it bugs the hell out of me that I can't just run it at top settings. There are something I don't much like, the post processing effects and much prefer them off or very low, but that is a visual thing. I don't much like HDR so I have that turned down too. I don't often fly so I don't need to see beyond 2500K, with my face in the dirt it's not needed.



With these settings I get the following:



Benchmark:
    One 41
    Two 15
    E08 48

If I try to push up the fillrate much beyond 100% or push the view distance out too far and the game becomes a slid show! To be honest I have to trim the setting shown to be able to play within a city on Chernarus or Zaragbad without lagging too much.

I guess I'm a little ticked off that my rig can't handle this game properly, so my question is, what can? Is there anyone out there that can have every in game setting maxed completely? can they get a sustained 60fps in every situation? Fillrate 200% 10K view distance running on a nice big screen??? Is it possible? What am I missing?

I have Arma 2 Operation Arrow Head for the PC and it Lags really bad Even on the LOWEST Settings Possible!!! My computer specs: i7 870 2.93 processor, ati radeon 5770 graphics card, 8 gigs of ram, 750 PSU and I have windows 7!!! It has to do with windows 7 because my computer is way higher then the recommend hardware requirements. Is there something that I have to disable like hyper threading or vsync or some shit like that? I have tried the target field thing in the shortcut where you put nosplash -world=none -maxmem=2047 -cpucount=4 -exThreads=7 all in the startup/command line of arma 2 OA. It didn't seem to make a difference. The game lags when there is a big battle ( which isn't really big) and I would have to decrease the graphics to get better FPS. What do I do?
