# JustCallMeSilv3r :
Can anyone answer me the question...Will the amount of ram in my system make a change in arma 2 co gameplay? and if it does to a good role would my 16gb hyperX 1600mhz do alot for me in this game?? Thank you
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
