Arma 3 is a twitchshooter
Needs more rainbow six 1-3
To run A2 you need at least a dual core running at 3Ghz (better quad core) and a decent video card.
Since you're on such a tight a budget I'd suggest a low-end but recent CPU (e.g. Intel Core i3-2100 £90) and video card (e.g. Radeon 7750 @ £85).
Then grab a cheap 1155/H61 mobo for £35, 4GB of DDR3 1600MHz for £20, 1TB 7200rpm HDD for £70 (Samsung SpinPoint F3) and SATA DVD-RW for £15.
Finally a decent case & PSU for £55, e.g. Coolermaster Elite 330 with 500W PSU
I know that £370 is double your budget but I don't see how you can do it any cheaper.
This reputed site underlines this
Trust me it's worth saving the extra quids and enjoying the game on a fast machine, rather than fiddling around with a croaky ol dinosaur like that one.
For the price of an i3 you can also get a PhenomII x6 1045T, slightly faster in arma 2 and the gains in arma 3 are probably greater.
Phenom II x6 1045T isn't easy to find so I searched for it's older brother the Phenom II X6 1100T and I found that under OA it only slightly slower than Core i7-920. Sadly the i3-2100 doesn't feature in the OA benchmark.
Do you have any benchs that show that a Phenom II X6 is faster than a i3-2100?
As I've found a bench that shows that in 2 other games (Crysis & Terran Conflict) the opposite is true.
Was going to get this game and was wondering if I bought some parts for my pc could I run it.
I am going to buy:
AMD athlon II x3 processor,
8800gt geforce graphics card
and 4gb ddr3 ram
As for the i3 vs phenom II x6, the i3 is faster per core but arma 2 multithreads well to 3 cores. I found this outdated arma 2 version test where the i3 is about on par with the phenom II quads.
I believe multithreading has improved a bit with the patches. The i3 will beat the sixcore when just walking on an empty island but when the shit hits the fan I think the sixcore will be faster. In arma 3 there will be no contest. the sixcore will just win with raw processing power.
of course unless sombody tests all these cpu's we wont know.
