Foxhound wrote it in one of his posts somewhere I think. :lol

This post I'm just guess 2009 & 2015 are rough dates! Big gap though. I misread :(

do i need to upgrade plz reply.my specs are: core quad cpu q6600 @ 2.40 ghz 2.40 ghz / 3 gb ddr2 ram / 2 hard disks of 360 gb 7200 sata each / I upgraded to geforce 88oo gtx 768 mb /and new power supply 650 watts / Vista Home Premium 32 bit

how are you running 3gb of ram on vista 32 bit?..it only will go upto 2 gig..very strange :con

i know this because i've tried and it doesn't work.


well looks good for me not having to upgrade..but i know there system requirments it prob means it will just run on them lol

Its not the vista that wont let you put more than 2GB in.

Or you could also concider that PCI devices need various ranges of the 32 bit address space for I/O, thus that address space can not be mapped to physical memory. So Windows will use some RAM to speed up yor graphics card.

I have 4GB on Win XP Home 32 Bit, but my system setting display 3.25, I know that it has pinched the rest to speed up my PCI card.

I have managed to get this much, even though my MB can take 8GB throgh my BIOS, like mine most have an option to recover part of the range, or decicate part of the range. But from memory this may be for SLI use? Will have to check.

I've got a Quad Core 2.4 GHz, 2 GB ram , a 8800GTS and Vista. So I won't have to buy anything to meet the
Projected Optimal PC System Requirements.
Lucky me :)
And hopefully ArmAII will still suport my Matrox Triplehead2Go.

Why wouldnt it? Matrox has just released some screenshots showing Arma 2 on the new triplehead2go, so if you already have that you are settled in all ways :)

Brewster Bufallo :
Minimal specs:
* Dual Core CPU
* 512 MB RAM
* GPU with Shader Model 3 and 256 MB RAM
* Windows XP or Windows Vista

Does this mean i need to have a Dual Core to run the game, or will my old Pentium4 3 GHz work? My specs can meet the other requirements but not that one


I thought you might want to read what Suma posted in the BI forums.


mr.g-c : Good to hear, although does that mean that if you have a quad-core the AI will act totally different than when having a dual or even a single-core? That would mean that a campaign and/or mission can be totally different on different systems...[quote]Suma :
The minimum requirements is a dual core system. AI is one of the major reasons for this requirement.

Hi and :welcome to armaholic.

I would say that nobody will know it till they release the game. These are projected PC specs so they may vary.

I suggest u to wait till we have final ones and even then i would try the demo (if there is one) before making my final decision. We know how PCs work, what for someone is playable for others it isn't so just rely on your opinion. You are the only one to decide that and if finally u have to upgrade then is when u start to look for the best option.

Looks like I might have to stick to arma and ofp for afew more years yet with the duel core requirment. Sure is tempting though to start putting money aside but really arma is good enough for me for atleast a good few years yet. And by that time, hopefully arma 2 is at patch 1.09 :)

I fear that if Arma 2 is out Arma will slowely come to its end. Maruk stated Arma wont be supported anymore after Ama 2 release (patches etc).
So I am not sure how long there will be a community (players I mean, Armaholic will always support arma :D) for you to enjoy the game with.

I agree though thankfully that does not effect me as i play all my arma on lan with people I know. Also I'm the one that sets the games up so if i stay with arma cause of my 6600GT and single core the others get dragged down as well :).

Hope this time they stick with the idea to make the single campaign into co-op and also they get time to add saves to multiplayer as i think they both would add alot expecially for them long coop missions.

tomcat : i would love to know if having a dual core will make a big difference on the game...let alone quad core...

so far i think only the UT3 is benefited from quad core....but i will need more convincing of the benefits in arma2 of a quad core...

Umm not really as Arma only uses one core. Other wise in games that use daul core yes it helps.

i recently got told that after vista sevice pack1 was released vista 32bit would allow 4gb memory(i'm not tect minded when it comes to pc's lol) so i put my 2extra strips of 2gb ram in, and still wondows only shows 3gb, however when my pc is booting it shows 4gb memory ok, so who knows! also now the score on memory has gone down from 3.5 to 2.5 lol

to sum up vista is rubbish

Ready, Willing and Able.

To use 4gb and more of ram under a 64bits os, you config must :
- Your MB chipset allow 8Gb (max) of RAM
- Your bios is able to do memory remaping
- Your CPU can receive 64Bits instructions

With a 32bits system, you can try to activate the Physical Adress Extension (PAE) as follow :
open a cmd window and write (windows + R) :
BCDEdit /set PAE forceenable
Then reboot.

But for 32 bits, 4Gb is the maximum (2^32). Windows can display more with the PAE force enable but will still use 3.5 :/ This limitation has been established to have a better compatibility with drivers. You can notice that a linux system can use more than 3.5Gb but, it's not a reference in drivers compatibility :)

I hope that you'll understand me because my english is VERY bad :D

Solution : 64 bits Operating System :) For exemple, I've Windows VISTA 64 bits with 8Gb of ram.
