Thank you for this. Also, if you are using an NVIDIA Graphics card, go into your control panel and mess with settings there. Improves performance quite a bit.

Ok mate, what settings did you change ?

All I really did was modify the V-Sync. This can cause problems however on Chernarus with tree's but it improves FPS. If you force it off the the control panel, it will disable the blur effect when running. But gives you a massive performance boost. I also have been experimenting with the AA setting in the control panel.

i have everything on very high settings 1280x1024 (max screen res for my monitor) i got filterrate at 100%, AA at maximum, exept textures (or terrain, dont remember) is on normal because i cant go any highter, (very high doesnt show up, any idea why?)
and my system is just GTX 260, Dual core @ 2.50 GHz, and 3 Gb ram, and XP home, it only lags once if i look directly in the sun, but thats about it.

Hey, I downloaded the german version and played it for a day in german, then got the v1.01 patch and then found an german to english patch. Perfect. What I found is the game still has plenty of room to optomise on the graphics front. I found slight increases in proformance from v1.0 to v1.01. I have Q9450, 4GB DDR3 and GTX260 216 Black edition. I can really only play with medium settings with out getting any lag. But i did find (same thing as Arma1) if you turn off the grass or turn it down to low it increases proformance greatly. Also i tried playing it on MAX everything graphics, Very laggy but looks amazing but then it CTD about 10seconds into the game, Any body else have this problem?

I think the fillrate are:
200%=AA16x
150%=AA8x
133%=AA4x
125%=AA2x
100%=Off

I have Nvidia 8400 GS, dual core 2,20 GHz, 2000 Mt RAM and Windows Vista, and you say you can run on max? Is my system even close to the performance of yours? because it would be sweet to run Arma 2 with atleast normal settings + 20 FPS.

@Tomahawk,sorry to tell you but your system, or better, graphics card is far away from jusefd's card.

You should be able to run at 20ish fps on normal settings.

20ish? ah well, I'll give it a try when Arma 2 shows up in the local store. If it's unplayable I might as well get a new processor or buy a PS3 and play OFP Dragon Rising when it's released

Sempax : I wouldn't buy a PS3. U just need a decent graphics card. Actually graphic cards are very cheap now. Check them out :)

So what graphic card would you recommend to have my FPS for Arma 2 with high settings around... 30-50 FPS? I really don't know anything about what stuff makes computers fast.
My budjet is 150-300€, but for ArmA II's sake I could MAYbe arrange more cash.

and yes, I recently decided not to get a PS3 since OFP 2 doesn't have a mission editor for consoles... :con

First i have to say Thanks Dead3yez your settings improved my visual quality significantly.I found 1 strange thing thou.My specs AMD 6000+ Nvidia 8800GTX 2GB RAM Win XP When I applied same settings as Dead3yez's my FPS were 55 but graphics clearer and just 100% better then on default settings . But when I put overal quality to Very High my FPS go up to 75 in boot camp.Nothing changed in cfg file as far I noticed. I just tested this in "Boot camp" running/driving and firing(3am here in perth :))

FIRSTLY ARMA2 need a very powerful CPU. You said that your CPU is just duo core 2.2G, which is little low for ARMA2 when it deals with tens or hundreds of units in a mission. For ARMA2, more cores and higher frequence is better. If you know how to overclock, you should OC your cpu to 3G for better performance.
Secondly,if you can afford at most 300€, I recommend you to get a GTX 285. If you are an ATI fan, and according to PGGH's review, in ARMA2 HD4890 plays better than GTX 285 (which can any other players confirm its accuracy?) and its price is much lower than GTX285, just same as GTX 275. But GTX 285 can play better than HD4890 in many of other games as usual.
BUT you must watch out your system power because thouse CARDs above are all big power consumer. You should have at least a 500W power to supply the whole computer.

Okay, thanks for the info. I'll consider about bying that, even though it would take me a good 4-5 months to raise the money for it, but; you said that I need a powerful CPU, right? well, I spotted this CPU called Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 which has 3,16 GHz freguenzy + 6MB L2 Cache and that would cost me 175€, so you think I should get that, or just buy the GTX 285?
I know how to overclock, but I got a HP so can't.
