OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply
I asked before with a better CPU and a lower end GPU but i thought this build would be the better approach to my needs,could use some pointers/advice if this is better than the i5 2400 with an HD 7770
arma 2 will run at high settings. on that card and give you 35 fps minimum. its a very cpu bound game and needs a quad to run smoothly a dual core is recommended minimum but it will lag on larger maps. the benches i gave yesterday are accurate m8 so it wont really matter what you build.. you wont get any more by swapping out the cpu for a weaker 1.
darnit,well can you give me any advice on what i would need to play it on high or medium with some stuff on high,i really dont need more than 30FPS,im using a laptop right now with everything turned on very low and i get about 15-20 FPS
ya i was thinking that but i wanted the i3 2120 so i would have a better upgrade path but would an FX 4170 be better,i know the phenoms are being phased out soon so im not sure if that would be a good idea or not
I am running on a 6870 with an I5 3570K and I run it on 60 fps constantly.. you would definitely need a quad-core CPU as Arma II is a very CPU-dependent Game. If you are on a budget I would recommend a phenom II 965 BE but if you have some extra cash I would go with an i5 2500K. The I5 2500K is on sale at Microcenter for $169.99 at the moment.
