I don't care about this. Arma2 runs fine for me a GTX 275 and a dual core, especially if you tweak the settings. Making it run in 'super mode' only makes it harder to play (blurrier, laggier, more pixels thus harder to aim across the screen). If you want performance gains with decent but not quite top of the line hardware, try 800x600 with AA on and see how smoothly it runs. Tweak 'sceneComplexity' down to about 50000-70000(max polygons drawn on screen). You only need at least 800 or less view distance for any ground battle, unless you're flying an attack chopper. Make it look decent but not so much that it becomes hard to play or laggy. If you want graphical gains at expense of performance and money, go ahead.. I get my thrill from being a better soldier in gameplay than admiring the view and getting shot like most seem to enjoy.
