So, Heres the situation guys, i have just instaled my GTX 660 from an old gts 450, i was quite exited to start up arma and have an engaging time like some of the people do on youtube with no stutter or lag on my mind, so i start up arma 2 oa with dayz and a map "Taviana" and i go into a server to play, It still stutters and lags when i go into big citys, JUST like it did when i had my gts 450, im quite sad that my investment does not help me what_so_ever, im not rich and i cant go buying new expensive things! i just dont understand, any help would be appreciated!I need the best and most cheep info like a new proccesor!

My system specs:

model: a6040n

processor: intel(r) core(tm)2 CPU 6320 @ 1.86GHz 1.86 GHz

Memory ( RAM ) 2.00 GB

system type 32-bit opperating system OS: windows vista- home premium

Go to the start button( If you're using Windows) at the lower left hand side of your screen and then go to computer/system properties and tell me what your processor is running at. Sometimes you're graphics card will clock the processor.

Your processor is weak compared to your GFX which bottlenecks your graphics card (GFX). Upgrade your processor :D

# Giorox :Upgrade your processor
And repeat the cycle of diminishing returns?
____
Rebuild the setup around (and take advantage of) your GTX 660...which means a motherboard which supports PCI E 3.0x16 cards (7 series), a current-gen CPU, and DDR3 RAM...hate to see throwing more good money after bad with perceived quick fixes.

Best bet would be if you can hold off until the release of the next-gen Haswell/Lynx Point line up -and the expected price drop/clear outs of Sandy Bridge & Ivy Bridge-based equipment.

Not what the OP wants to hear(read), but there it is.

Congrats on your new GPU, the 660 is a great chip :)
In concerns the the i5 you wish for, you should know that your current CPU uses a PLGA775 socket and the i5 uses a LGA1155 socket.
What this means to you is it has the wrong "plug-in" for your motherboard and is incompatible. If you'd want the i5 then you would also need a new motherboard with the LGA1155 socket :(
In this link all the CPU's that have the socket PLGA775 are compatible with your motherboard and RAM. If you don't want to buy a new motherboard and RAM, these amount to your options.
Unfortunately, none of these CPUs will do your GPU justice. Also, I dont know what power supply you have but maybe a motherboard and cpu replacement alongside your high-powered 660 would need a power supply upgrade as well. Everything is tied together and makes things not so simple to change around.
For now I would recomment setting shadows to the highest settings. I read somewhere that this forces the GPU to do more of the rendering and might give you a performance increase.

I am very macho.

You just said exactly what i did, but you went more in-depth. Though i took for granted that the OP would know what i mean.
