Hi, I'm new to the forums and I have a little issue with Arma 2 (Day Z) and the frames I've been getting. A friend and I play together on during our playtime and I get an average of 30-40 FPS while he averages 60-70 FPS. I don't really know what the hardware/software problem is that's slowing me down compared to his computer since I OC both my CPU and GPU while he only OC's his CPU.
My Specs: AMD Athlon II X4 635 (OC'd at 3.5 GHz) 570 GTX (OC at 870 Mhz Core & 1950 Mhz memory) 4GB of DDR3 RAM Windows 7 Asus M4A77TD Mother board
My friend's specs: Intel i5 2500k (OC'd 4.3 Ghz) 560 GTX (stock) 8GB of DDR3 Windows 7 AS Rock Extreme 3 Gen 3 Motherboard
Any thoughts or obvious things that I need to change in order to get close to/exceed his frames?

It is your CPU slowing you down, I went from a core 2 quad to an i7 and gained 20fps in Arma 2.
*sigh* really? I guess I'll need to buy a i5 2500k and a new mobo for the CPU to sit on.... there goes 400 bucks. =/
EDIT: Is there a CPU equivalent of an i5 that my AMD mobo can fit?
