I would say that the Nividia GeForce 9800M GTS is a good card to go with. I just bought the Gateway FX Laptop to just run arma, and its wonderful!

I see that ArmA 2 runs with Dual Core, now could I run it with Intel Centrino 2?

Hi folks :)

At the current time I just own a laptop pc with intel core2 duo 2.16 GHz;4GB RAM and gpu Radeon HD 4570 with 512MB.

Since yesterday I played ArmA2 with a resolution of 1366x768 and graphic details set with a mix of "normal" and "high" (1/2:1/2) at a viewdistance of 1800 meter.

I tried some singleplayer missions and it was playable without lag (I was surprised by myself^^).

I am not really sure if I can or cannot run ArmA 2.
here's my system:

Intel core duo CPU, 2,20 Ghz
2047 Mt RAM
Nvidia GeForce 8400
Windows Vista 32bit
and I'm not sure if I got some graphics-running programs up to date...

What do you guys think?

I would have to say YES:


I am playing ArmA 2, while waiting for my new pc to arrive, on this 3 year old machine:

Pentium D 3,2 Ghz
2 GB RAM
Nvidia 7900 GTX //yeah that's an AGP card :P
Windows XP 32-bit

Graphics settings are all set to Normal except for post processing which is on Lowest because it looked too shiny for my taste, and Anisotropic filtering which is set to Low. Resolution is 1280 x 1024. Fillrate (FSAA?) is on half so 100%.
(ArmA 2 version 1.01)

As you might imagine this rig is not giving me the smoothest ride ever but at least it's playable. Sometimes I see black boxes instead of a burning vehicles though. Sniper scopes can be a bitch when zoomed in through lots of grass and vegetation.
I have not measured the FPS performance.

Anyway I'm really looking forward to playing ArmA 2 on my new pc... :)

I don't think at them moment there is any hardware capable of running Arma 2 at its best (consumerwise). I think with your current card Arma 2 will run and while more counties across the globe get their version wait and see what other people report and upgrade your system with that info ;)

I have a Q9450, 4GB DDR3 Ram and Black edition GTX260 216 xfx card and i can only play it on medium settings at 1440.900.
But you must remeber as more patches come out as in arma1 the game will get more optimised. So some1 who has say
Dual core E6750 and GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB with 2GB ram will get round 20FPS untill more patches come out. But then say 1-2 months down the track when a gud patch comes out you can and problery would jump up 2 around 30fps on the same settings with same rig. So guys you shouldn't be scared off by what people are saying now bout how gud there system is and how crap FPS they are getting

I have a Intel Core 2 Duo 2,20 GHz processor, Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS video card, 2000Mt of RAM and Windows Vista.
Let's say I buy a Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3,16 GHz processor. How much FPS would I have with normal settings?

I know this is a stupid question but, even tho the specs for arm2 is nearly twice what it is for arma1..many people who have it says even with a computer that runs the min specs for arma1 will still run arma2 good. is this true?
and if not is there anything i could do other then get a new computer? cause i have a labtop..so it cant be updated with out paying over 600 dollors!
