    +1 and +1 to 650ti Boost

    Also, I don't know that you will be able to play arma 2 on ultra with that CPU... it's not a well optimized game and is a known bear on CPUs
  7. Yeah i agree with BigMack70
  8. On heavily scripted/ modded servers, an AMD 965 OC to 3.8 will pull 35-50 fps. Like the others have said, Arma 2 (Bohemia titles in general) are poorly optimized and often require custom EXE start-up strings to even get that high.

    At that resolution, you may likely pull it off, but @ 1920x1200 its an elusive beast
  9. Wow, I have the same CPU but with a GTX 250. I'm trying to run ArmA 2 and 3, well, all ArmAs at a good performance and my G card is starting to sag. Got a gigabyte mobo, 4 G of ram. I was also suggested the GTX 650 ti. But with budget I might try and go a little higher. I want to also upgrade my card but in a while I will eventually upgrade to a i3 or i5.
