Upgrading To Play Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead.

Finally after much patient waiting I got my new computer parts yesterday.

Nvidia EVGA GTX 460

1GB Nvidia EVGA GTX 460

I yanked everything out of my old box and stuffed in the new parts. As I thought when I first started contemplating upgrading my computer, I needed to replace my power supply as well. Here is what I ended up buying:

  • EVGA Nvidia GTX 460 1gb video card
  • Asus P6T SE LGA 1366 Motherboard
  • ANTEC 750Watt Ultra Power supply
  • Kingston RAM, 6GB 3 piece kit
  • Intel Core i7 920 2.8 Ghz

I installed the 64 bit version of Windows 7 then the Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead demo and ran the benchmark mission.

My resolution was set to 1650×1050 and with the video settings on Very High my average was 44 FPS. With the settings on High my average was 59 FPS.

I was very pleased. Now I just have to pay for it.
