you got slow office-style(matx) mobo not designed to work as full speed gaming pc.Not fastest graphic card.
All driver setting need to be set to default mod. Game setting set to lowest settings with native monitor resolution.Check your fps with 2000 vd and without any additional settings or mods.Tell me what your resolution and what your fps in default benchmarks 01 02 e08 maps with these settings.
If you still not happy with fps you need to change mobo to intel based (something fresh) and not matx.If you happy with your fps you can try slightly increase quality to see how it is effect performance.If you check what people write about their performance you will find that such low fps normal with your system.

You will find that some settings you can run high+; AF, Shadows. But testing your best settings on a MP server is problematic.
Still your getting some lack of GPU usage? Which say's bottleneck? Driver? HDD? CPU issue. The low GPU usage has been posted a few times here. You can try AMD Overdrive to see whats up?
As for the comment about a "matx" MB being a issue. is well BS.
...Free people unbanable...
I know i shouldnt have AMD for gaming, i know that now, and my MB is crappy. (probs)
I know it must be very frustrating having a machine that really should run Arma 2 without that many hiccups, but seemingly not able to. The cpu and gpu you have should be o.k. for running the game, it really would be great if something turns up that ticks the right box and it all falls in place. AMD is just as good as intel for A2, I run one and it produces what I need for the game using the amount of ai I want in the missions I make (sensible level).
Daft question and no doubt you have answered it or done this already, but have you placed a single unit on a map (you) in a city, then in a wooded area then out in the open and compared frame rates. Don’t move the unit, just look to all points of the compass and make a note of each rate, repeat it in all the areas. Just the one unit, use a BIS unit not a mod, then list the result here, including where the test was done.
Possibly won’t help but its just a test to see the difference’s.
Use a 1000vd in all the areas.
Feel free to say 'no'..
Max settings, (all on very high) in cherno i get: around 15FPS with 20% usage
^^ in NW airfield i get around 25-30FPS constant with 30-35% usage
Needless to say it was alot smoother and even if i only had 15fps it lagged so much less. [/quote]
