My system specs are:

Quad core (sandybridge) i7 2.0Ghz
Dedicated GPU: ATI 6490m (256mb of video memory)
4GB RAM
HDD @5000RPM

As you can see, my CPU is reasonably beastly.
BUT my graphics card is sheeeeeite due to the low video memory.

what settings affect which? I.E which should I put on low (to ease my GPU's load) and which should I put on High (to utilise my CPU)?

thanks in advance.

Alfie

my pc has a quadcore cpu but a dedicated gpu with 512mb (1gb hypermemory)...

still can't run arma. so i run arma on my laptop (i5, 2gb gpu, 8gb ram)

y'myt need a dedicated graphics card to maximize your cpu's power. just my two cents.

Both the video card and the cpu work "together" so if u change the settings , it will affect both the video card and the cpu would recommend to buy a better video card :)

Just to clarify
I am running arma with reasonable smoothness, I've put it to medium quality and I get about 20 FPS (which is actually smooth and playable.), I'd just like to know if there is anyway to boost performance and or increase graphics quality without sacrificing FPS based on my system specs, I'd like to start recording some footage, but I only get 10FPS when running FRAPs.
