  • New system

    I have a new computer and i've been bugging myself to get ArmA for it.

    Heres the specs.

    CPU: Intel [email protected]
    Memory: Corsair-800mhz 2gigs
    Hard Drive: 1x 500gig 7200RPM
    GPU: EVGA 8800GT 512mb
    Soundcard: Onboard
    Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit
    MoBo:EVGA 780i 3-way sli

    Yes i have a mic.

    I was wondering how the game would run at 1280*1024 resolution (native for my monitor).

    When you can't run anymore, you crawl and when you can't do that, you find someone to carry you.

    1280x1024 I'd imagine you could get fairly high settings, although I'd expect AA and AF would be low.

      Nerd stop following me around everywhere mate! Welcome to ARMA :D

      I have a similar setup like you, although i have 4 gigs of ram and a 8800 GTS OC. I run at 1280x1024 at high settings. I had to turn post processing and aa down to low (under advanced) to get it smooth. I suggest you do the same.

      Cya in there :D

        I would have to agree with the above posts. A mix of high settings will work well for you. I find that AA only needs to be at 2x, any higher and it can really cripple things, having it off though really kills the visuals for me (read to many jaggies).

        Some settings like shadows can have really big effect on performance so pick what looks best for you.

          Yes you could. its only a mater of tweaking and finding the right settings for you.

            With Vista64, it would be a huge boost if you went with at least 4 gigs of ram. And considering how cheap good ram is, you could get some for like $30. Or you might even just want to get a 4 gig kit and be running with 6 gigs total, which would cost about $60.

            For instance:

            CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB)

            or

            CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB

                  Not at all. In fact, I recommend against buying it purely because it is the first thing you'll need to disable to play on server 2.
