Mine is GTX 460 SE. If you can get that then it will be perfect! of not then go for the GTS 450.

1st - Check The Rules! 2nd - Use The Search!

Yea, I agree with Dark...go with GTS450 but I recommend at least a GTX460 or higher to play on awesome settings

I need some input on how to improve the overall FPS, what's the bottleneck on my system?

If upgrades is needed which of these item will be the most effective: GPU or CPU or if SSD (OCZ Vertex 2) will help?

Currently Running:
Intel Quad Core Q6700 2.67 GHz (Stock)
EVGA Nvidia GTX 275 896mb (Stock)
EVGA nforce 680i SLI motherboard
OCZ 2x2GB RAM
2x 500 GB 7200 RPM Seagate (Raid 1)
Windows 7 64-Bit
750W Corsair PSU
1680x1050 Resolution on 22" LCD

Thanks,

I think CPU upgrade would be very affective, a 2.67 GHz clock speed CPU is not really that good for this game (I know, I have one as well and my performance is not good due to it).
If you have some extra money laying around you could invest in a GTX460. I did that as well and it at least helped my performance.
I bought an overclocked version of the GTX460 with 1gb and it really helped me getting at least better perfomance, to bad like you I have not a fast enough CPU but my motherboard does not support a higher one.

Technically speaking, adding Solid-State Drives to an nForce 680i MCP is problematic.
Problem One: There is no inherent AHCI bus capability with the 680i, so while the drive will be recognized by the system and usable (to an extent), the added benefits of the SSD are lost, and considering the GB/$ ratio of these -even today- it would make more sense to stick to HHDs with better spin rates and/or cache amounts... if you intend on sticking with that motherboard.
Problem Two: See Problem One.

Your CPU upgrade choices will be severely limited by the boards LGA 775 socket.

Considering that you are already running Win7x64, adding more RAM to the open slots (or using higher cap DIMMs) might help net some performance gain.

As noted above by Foxhound adding a current (GTX5x)/near current (GTX4x) series GPU to your existing setup will yield more bang for the buck than anything else -short of a rebuild.

Time to start planning a replacement for that faithful old 680i of yours.

I have
phenom ii x4 955 @ 3.8ghz
4gb DDR31333 ram
WD Black 640gb HDD
GTX 460 1gb

I can play the game just fine, but I can't get the settings currect, It's either to much and I lose FPS or It's to low and the game looks bad.
I'm stuck on a 1280x1024 resolution, and just wondering what settings I should be able to play at just fine?

Intel Core2Duo 3.00 GHz - not the best but should be playable
2gb DDR3 1333 ram this is your bottleneck
GeForce GTX 460 SE i make sure you have the latest drivers

Hello guys, I'm wondering what kind of grahpic card I could use for Arma 2 right now, something cheap and that is compatible with my Motherboard.

I'm not sure how you figure out the whole "Oh this card and that card works" thing.

I'll write down the specs here.

Graphic card: ATI Radeon HD 4650

Processor AMD Athlon II x4 630 processor (4 CPUs) ~2.8GHz

Memory - 6144MB RAM

Motherboard - Pegatron M2N78-LA (Violet6)

I'm looking for a decent graphic card to run it smoothly, on low/medium. Right now I can run it, but in lowered resolution.

Checked a website "Can you run it?" that told me I could run the Recommended If i upgraded from my ATI 4850 to either ATI 4850 or GeForce 8800 GT.

I'm quite new to this manage my computer and stuff so every help here is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance! :)

No reason you cant get the 4850 however what PSU do you have? Personally id recommend this http://www.scan.co.uk/products/1gb-xfx-hd-6850-4000mhz-gddr5-gpu-775mhz-960-stream-processors-2x-dvi-hdmi-dp its faster than the 4850 and about the same price!
