I started playing online shooters when I saw my brother playing COD4, since then I have been hooked. However, recently things have grown stale. COD is now so popular all you ever run into is new players and its rarely a challenge. I started playing competitively in MW2 in underground competitive websites as well as gamebattles. While I still enjoy the former, GB is just full of whiny children who try to get a win no matter what. BF3 is... not what I hoped it would be. Recently bought a i5 2500k/SSD/8GB RAM (still working on a video card) rig about 2 months ago. Somehow the other day I stumbled across an ArmA video on youtube (while watching a BF3 video)... and was BLOWN away.
I am posting this thread not just to tell you about how excited I am about this game, but I need some help.
I have acquired a broken 9600 GT from a friend; just need a capacitor to be replaced. Will this run it? I imagine it will be a bit of a bottleneck.
I do want to get something decent that can run ArmA 2 great and will run 3 good as well. ~$140. Any suggestions.
