DDR3 is the standard for your RAM.

As long as your HDD is SATA III, you should be good to go -providing the vendor routed it to one of the motherboards Intel (P67/Z68) controllers, and not the Marvel (if any) controllers <which can be problematic for OS-loaded storage devices.


As for resolution, I was referring to your monitors(s) native -or your preferred- resolution, not the in-game 3D res setting.

I will probably be using a 720p 32in HDTV, will using this tv lower my frame rate alot? will it be better if I get a monitor? or do you think it wont be a problem..
My Mobo is a Z68 by the way..

Hi all!
Would you be so kind anybody to recommend me or write me a link how to set ARMA2:OA to get the best peformace from my PC? I´m owner of this using Windows 7 Home Premium:

motherboard: ASUS M2N68 plus
procesor: AMD Phenom(tm)9550 Quad-Core Processor 2.21 GHZ
RAM: 4 GB
graphic: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD4850 1GB
I play with vertical synchronisatin OFF
I spent so much time to find the best and stable settings but without useful success and I am mad of it.

Is it possible to get good FPS from this PC or should I suppose to buy new one PC? If yes, what I should buy then. What are the best components which offer to the player of ARMA2 best performace for the not highest but reasonable price?

Thank you very much for your time guys here!

Hi all. I´m planning to upgrade my AMD 965 (4-core CPU @3.7) to an Intel i5 2500K. It seems that the Intel CPU is vastly superior as it has stronger cores and can be easily overclocked. Anyone with such CPU could tell me about its performance? I would like to play on high settings with some options disabled, such as AA (running FXAA on option 2 with no performance hit and no white outlines), hdr on normal and PP on normal or disabled. I run @1680x1050 (screen and 3D resolution) on an 60Hz monitor with a gtx 470 (stock) and 4 gigs of 1333Mhz DDR3 memory (soon to be upgraded to 8 gigs). Thanks for those who may answer and happy gaming for all.

I Have an i5 2500k OC to 4.3 and its the best thing ever it can handle anything. I can run arma 2 co on all settings on high with around 40-60 fps. The only thing holding me back from running this game maxed out is my gpu. I have a gtx 550 ti.

If I'm not mistaken Arma will not use over 2GB of RAM anyway.. at the very least 4GB.. so 16GB is great but it won't make any difference in Arma. Arma is all about CPU clock speed and hard drive speed. I switched from an older SATA drive to an OCZ SSD drive and the difference was amazing (fast load times.. no stuttering when loading textures, etc). I know someone that runs an Intel Dual core and with it heavily overclocked it is just fine (I have an i7 920 myself). I can't remember offhand but I don't think more than 2 cores makes much of a difference either as Arma is not optimized to support it (sounds crazy I know).

I still get some lag on occasion and on certain maps it can feel sluggish but that seems to be just how Arma runs.. and I have a GTX 570 so it's not my GPU [:-}

Bless you my son.

HEy, tommorow is my birthday and I was thinking of getting a new graphics card for my PC. I want to get the best possible for the game to improve the visual aspect of the game. here are my specs


Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
Operating System: Windows Vista™ Home Premium (6.0, Build 6000) (6000.vista_gdr.100218-0019)
System Model: Dell XPS420
BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A02
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.4GHz
Memory: 3070MB RAM

As for my questions, will upgrading the GCard alone give me a significant performance increase? Is it possible that newer cards won't work with my PC? Thanks in advance!

Also new case roswell future gaming case 9 120 mm fans, and option for water cooling. Should I be able to run arma 2 on highest setting? Thanks o resolution would 1980 x 1200 or something around that thanks. O yea getting a massive cpu cooler to oc (over clock).

Or should i go with a I5 2500K & Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3 LGA 1155 Z68 ATX Intel Motherboard. Price difference is about $70 dollars. Any input is greatly appreciated.

My only concern would be the Asrock motherboard... go with the I5 and Asus mobo instead

Bless you my son.
