Hey, My exams will end in 2 weeks, so Arma II is coming up then. i'm considering upgrading my pc, i have the opportunity to do so because i have someone to sell my old parts too at a fair price.
Would i get a serious performance increase with the following upgrade
C2Duo e6850 2x 3.6 Ghz (over clock).
4 GB DDR2-800,
HD in Raid 0
Ati 4890 (bought a few months ago)
I would upgrade it to
Core i7 860
still the Raid 0 HD config
and also still my graphics card. (ati 4890)
Would this increase performance for me, especialy on the campaign and online Warfare. I'm running in 1920x2000 resolution

I have corrected my settings in game and am getting great fps, but my quality has taken a hit. It is getting on my nerves that I have a fairly good rig at least I think I do and I cant use any antialiasing or I get crappy fps like 11 when I am in woods or heavy battles.
What is a fix to this problem? What would I need to upgrade to be able to use antialiasing so I can remove those annoying jagged edges!
This is my rig and settings:
edited after some tests and this is the updatedI have concluded that Postprocess Effects needs to be Disabled if you want to use any setting of antialiasing, and that depending on your graphics card and resolution, this seems to be doing the trick for me and my rig atm, but will check back and would appreciate any advice.

Ok so what I did was take your advice and turned on "Threaded Optimization"; Basically turned Anisotropic filtering: "Application-controlled" (basically off); turned on "Texture filtering - Trilinear optimization" to give me better performance; set to Allow "Texture filtering - Negative LOD bias" for higher performance

Here is where the good stuff is at.. first and foremost I turned Postprocess Effects: "Disabled" (this did wonders); Texture Detail to "High"; Video Memory to "Default"; set Antialiasing to "Low" (and in Nvidia control panel I set Antialiasing - Mode: "Enhance the application setting" and Antialiasing - Setting: "2x" to boost the Antialiasing in game); turned Terrain Detail: "High"; Object Detail: "High"; Shadow Detail: "High"

Hi, I've been currently running the demo with a ATI Radeon HD 3650 256MB card and running everything on low/medium will still some crappy frame rates. I purchased Nvidia GeForce GTX260 896M card recently and am just wonder how this would perform in the accual game. I run at 1920x1080 resolution... I am hoping this will allow me to start using the high options. I can't stand running low/med settings.
Windows Vistom Home Premium 64-bit
Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz
6.00 GB of RAM
Nvidia GeForce GTX260 896M
700 watt power supply
Planning on buying this game in the next few days, I've been having a blast in the demo. Just wonder if there will be a large increase in performance with the new card.
I run the game on a beast, unleashing the ultimate power of the Intel P4 Processor.
P4 3.00ghz single core
8600gt 256 mb
2 gig ddr1 ram
350 w power supply
I run most settings on low, with res at 1280x1024. Usually get like 15fps average on mission editor but I am pretty used to low fps kind of calibrated myself to handle it.

Hi, I know the performance issues I get now is from an outdated proccessor.
Spec: 2 x Nvidia Geforce 7950 GT
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200 + @ 2.21GHz
4GB DDR2 BALLISTIX RAM
Iv been considering the phenom range..9950 etc. Is this a good choice? Also I read the 9950s had been discontinued? If so, is there any, of the eqiuvalent price range, that meet the same spec.
More so, will this be enough power to run the game on normal settings smooothly.
if you can, please respond to
yes it does run on Windows 7

these settings is it enough?
CPU AMD Phenom x4 3400Ghz Quad
Mother board Gigabyte
GPU XFX GTS 250 (i have 2 SLI)
Power Supply 550 Watts
Zelman Cooling Fan(the huge chopper one)
3 GB RAM DDR2
is this enough??? to run the game everything full
Well ... I just want to inform you what my specs are:
OEM: Windows 7 Ultimate
• CPU: AMD Phenom x4 965 4x 3,4 Ghz
• + COOLER: Asus Silent Square EVO
• Board: Asus M4A79T Deluxe (Designed for AM3)
• Ram: OCZ 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz
• Graphic: Gainward GeForce GTX260 Golden Sample (it's a hell of a overclocked 260 )
• HDD: A nice Western Digital
Everything is packed into a Thermaltake ElementS with a Xilence 700w Gamer ATX.
I was surprised, it runs 1280x1024px on very high (+ full range visibility )without any problems on a 64 vs 64 mp server.
I spent not more than 1.000,- € for the whole system ... (I built it by myself)
Probably I'll help someone not to get poor ;D

Wondering if anyone here has tried to run ARMA 2 on a Mac through bootcamp. A guy on the (unmentionable game) forum did this and said it worked pretty well.
So, seeking advice on doing this as opposed to buying a whole new system. I think the processor is core duo 2.4 ghz. unsure of GPU
