AMD Athlon AM3 AMD Phenom II 1055T X6 @ 3.9ghz
Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600mhz CL9

Windows 7 64Bit RC 7100
To add on to my earlier post. I looked at the specs for win7 64 on micrsoft.com and it says that you need 2GB just to run it! How will that affect my ArmA2 game play if I have 4GB of ram?
I just tried using CCC to centre my 1680x1050 resolution (native 1920x1200) and it seems to have had a dramatic impact on performance. At the opening screen I used to get 18-20 frames and lots of stuttering until the camera panned over the first chopper, and now I'm getting 40-45 for the same scene... Odd
The HD4850 is better by far.
As for the Windows 7 thing - 2GB is the recommended requirement, I have seen it run just fine on machines with only 1GB of RAM. I have 4GB on my machine and I have no problems running ArmA II or anything else (When you have 2GB or more of RAM, Windows 7's background processes take up around 1GB, on systems with less than 1GB, the memory usage scales accordingly.)
MY AWESOME PC: Intel 8088 @ 4.77MHz | 128KB DRAM | MC6845 4KB Monochrome Graphics card | 10MB Seagate ST-412 Hard Drive | 83-key Model F keyboard | 14" IBM 5151 green-phosphor Monitor | PC-DOS 2.0
The E5200 would be better than the 2.7GHz Athlon as far as I know.
EDIT: I think RussianGuy meant to go for the AMD system because it has more RAM... Tbh, you'd be best looking up benchmarks for the two CPUs and seeing which gives better bang for buck. Also, any idea what make/model those PSUs are?

the one with the e5200 is a 420w psu in the store case.
the one with the amd is a 400 psu in a store case.
What make are the cases?
Something must be wrong.
-I have a q9550
-nvidia gtx 285
-win vista 32
And get like 25 fps on medium / low
Seems like people running the game on Vista have been having a lot of performance issues. Either Windows 7 or XP give better results. Considered trying Windows 7?
