I am hoping that the title of this post will get someone's attention and maybe some much needed advice. I have only learned about ArmA II, its expansions, and the upcoming release of ArmA III. My problem (the headache) is this. Before I can purchase this excellent simulation, I also need to purchase a better computer. I have read through volumes of posts on different forums by people that thought they had a computer that could handle everything the sim could threw at computer only to experience terrible frame rates, crashes, and a host of other issues. Now I don't want to fork out two or three thousand dollars on a new computer and find that the hardware in it won't support this series at even its minimal requirements. I also notice that ArmA II and ArmA III require different video cards, in the way of memory. For the life of me, I can't find (and I have looked extensively) a Nvidia Ge-Force GTX 260 with the required 896 Gb of VDRAM. If by chance I do find one, will ArmA II work with it. Yes, that may be a dumb question but you have to remember that I am a 58 year-old geezer that isn't that computer savvy as far as hardware goes.
If anyone can help me (the aspirin) with this headache, I sure would appreciate it. I just need to be pointed in the right direction.
