Arma 3 is a twitchshooter
Needs more rainbow six 1-3
An interesting entry here in a PC Gamer interview : Day Z + Arma 3 interview — optimization, map design, radios, porting Day Z into Arma 3
PC Gamer : What were you guys running Arma 3 on at E3?
Crowe: 580s and i7s. Not even SLI. Just one graphics card.
PC Gamer : One 580?
Crowe: Yeah. My system that we captured the videos on, that’s a special one… I think 560 on an i7, 3.2GHz or whatever? The SSD helps. It’s all little bits of good components, overall, that make the game smoother. They are running really nice at E3. In fact I’m going to print out that DirectX config, post it up and say, “Guys, this will run smooth, we’re happy with it.”
Hall : I mean, my personal computer isn’t anything kick-ass. If you can run Arma 2 you can run Arma 3. Everyone’s saying they’ll need to upgrade their computer—you’ll need a reasonable graphics card, but the average user doesn’t need a latest-generation graphics card.
Dslyecxi: One part of it, also, it’s so easy for people to set their settings wrong. You can have one setting be wrong and it ruins the whole thing.
Even though if you don't need such a high end graphics card, would it still help to pick a 670 GTX over a 570 GTX instead? Like frame rates increase or anything like that? I'm wondering because I'm planning to get myself the Windforce 670 GTX by Gigabyte, just need someone to confirm how much it would help.
Hmm, I'm wondering whether I should spend $400 on the 670 GTX or cheap out grab a 560 TI. The price difference is pretty high.
I have an MSI Twin Frozr 250 GTS (got it for $50 to replace a dead 9800 GT for this computer I'm using). I'm thinking of leaving the 250 GTS on the older comp, just using that temporally on the new comp for now.
I'm considering either this here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125423 for a 670 GTX or cheap out and go for a 560 GTX TI although this one is refurbished http://www.aztekcomputers.com/N560GT...I-2595213.html
or how about an AMD 7850 instead?

would a gtx 560 (ti) run ARMA 3 on the highest settings?
