Man, my single core computer is getting more and more out of date every day! I saw a computer in WALMART sitting in the middle isle that costs 400 bucks that is better then mine. I may have to start thinking about upgrading if I want to play arma 2 or any other new game for that matter. I've had my current computer for 8 yeras I'm kind of attached to it : ( I've considered upgrading the mobo/gpu,cpu/ramm but I don't honestly know if I'm capalbe of something like this. Also my dvd/cd/harddrive are all pretty old, I duno if a newer mobo will accept them, but alas I'm veering mostly off topic here.

If anything I doubt the specs will increase, they may actually decrease. The better a game is coded the less the requirments are normally.

I can run the current ArmA fine. Its the A.I. that start to drain the performance for me. The bigger the maps and conflicts, the more I start to experience sound stutters and what not. I just hope they've worked to make the A.I. in ArmA II less stressful on the system

Oh cool, my system can run it, my big hope though is that it's WAAAY more optimized than arma since arma was (and still is) shaky on a lot of middle-hardware

Hi,

I have a ATI 3870,
I was thinking of going crossfire and having 2. Does ARMA 2 support this? if not I better get a new graphics card!

Thx

Well this sucks :( Won't be able to run ARMA 2 and been waiting for this game since it got announced :((
Stupid graphics card is one model out of the min requirments. Had same problem with ARMA 1 when it came out. So not fair :(

I'm sort of glad that the ArmA II release in the U.S. is a bit slower. It gives me a little bit of time to upgrade so when it actually does release I'll be able to go out and get it no problem
