  1. 1280 1024 and cpu i guess can be over clock thing is im limited with computers just love playing games im thinking off an upgrade and dont have a clue iff i should buy new cpu or graphais card id be very greatfull to get help i can spend 200 euro or so
  2. A light OC won't damage you CPU.

    I'd OC (~3.0ghz) your CPU and upgrade your graphics and see how that goes before buying a new processor.
  3. At 1280x1024, your GPU is probably actually enough to do pretty much whatever. A CPU OC would probably be best bet, especially with something like Arma2 which I believe is generally more CPU limited. Problem with buying a new CPU would be its gonna be real hard to get something much better than you have with the motherboard it needs for $200 euro.
  4. thank u every so much its a start very great full
  5. no problem. :-) Have fun Gaming
  6. thank u im going to look into over clocking it will be a learning prosses it seems to be a good option
  7. Good luck with that. Its really a fun process, and you'll learn a TON doing it. I'm forever tinkering with my hardware and I love doing it:-)

    well the 8800GTS can handle 1280 x 1024 but if you want to upgrade your video card, here is tom's best cards for the money, there's also a hierarchy chart at the end

    you can cross reference retailers stock and prices with the list

    I think your biggest increase would be from OC your CPU, heres a link to Tom's OC forum, plenty of people there can help you OC
