Grimfist : Windows XP or Windows Vista

Does that means ArmA 2 will be released before Windows 7 ?

These were released a very long time ago, last year I think...although maybe I'm thinking about another game.

Indeed, Blackhawk is right.
These are the latest official system requirements posted a long time ago. It is very well possible today those specs are not enough anymore so we need to wait for more official information before you could really decide wether or not your system would be able to run it without problems.

I Came here to see if the System Requirements will have the word Vista in it and it does, But they just post some information if they will also make it for Direct X 10 and, they said that they will not because they fail to see what it improves.

Let get this out of the way, you are wrong...

haystack15 :I think they should because Direct X 10 is made for windows vista for game compatibly.
DirectX is backwards compatible between versions.

It also is a basic power manager for game frame rate. So you won't kill you computer power.
There is no such thing as a 'power manager for game frame rate' the frame rate is a product of the GPUs ability to render, the motherboard, memory and HDD's speed in feeding the card information and display drivers efficiency orchestrating the process. All DirectX does is provide a consistent interface and set of features to developers to allow them to develop a single code-base that targets all GPUs.

I just hope that because they won't move to it that Arma2 will have frame rate problems leading to crashing or blue screens on windows Vista users. :|:|
Unless you have crap hardware there is no reason that this should happen.

I hope they really make ArmA2 Dx9/10 because 1)on Vista Dx10 games run better 2)fps on every single game is better then with dx9(at least on my PC) and of course it looks a lot better)

Ondrej said repeatedly that they will use the DirectX9 engine for ArmA2.

Nice to see that the system requirements aren't through the roof. I'll still need to upgrade over the summer time though if I want to enjoy the game. I like gameplay as much as the next guy but, graphics can make or break a game

Keep in mind the specs posted are from a while back and they are still subject to change.
Don't draw a conclusion about the specs just now but wait fot the last official info. Probably when the game goes cold they release the final requirements.

Oh yeah I figured that much. I'm just glad to see some sort baseline. Hopefully the upgrades I get will still allow me to play
