Will-my-pc-run-Arma3? What cpu/gpu to get? What settings? What system specifications? in ARMA 3 - GENERAL Posted March 23 12 hours ago, eryk0wski said: Thanks for the reply. I'm wondering if the AMD cpu will be good for Arma, because I heard that Intel CPUs are much better for Arma, also what do you propose to change if I had those 100-200 more. I think I might be able to save that in upcoming months. While that was certainly true some years ago, this is no longer the case. Since AMD brought out the Zen architecture they have not only closed the performance gap, they also offer more cores for a lower price. (cores don't really help much for max fps in Arma, but the fps drops usually are rarer) with the latest version of the Zen architecture (Zen2) used in the Ryzen 3XXX CPUs AMD pulled ahead in terms of performance per clock. now Intels only advantage is their higher maximum clock, so they still have (afaik) the fastest CPUs for Arma, but below that you can pick a Ryzen, especially for a budget gaming PC. In my last post i have already mentioned, a possible change: the R5 3600 instead of the R5 1600. It is faster (higher clock+architecture gains) and less picky when it comes to RAM. I don't have benchmark values, but judging by clock and architecture gains, i'd say, it's around 25% faster. What you certainly should get soon(ish), is a SSD. Having Windows and ARMA on an SSD greatly reduces stuttering in game and the general system performance. Those aren't really expensive anymore, so you might want to get one with 240GB or more. Without doing much research i'd recommend the Patriot P200 512GB, SATA (P200S512G25). It costs around 65€-70€ around here and the specifications look fine to me. As the others already mentioned, you shouldn't skimp on RAM. ARMA can fill more than 8GB, so 16GB should be the minimum to go with. While the RAM clock is an important parameter, the timings are more important imo. RAM clock (e.g. 3600MHz): higher is better. RAM timing (e.g. 16-18-18): lower is better. the first number is the "CL-Timing", you can take it as an indicator for the timings. with 3200MHz Ram you shouldn't go slower than CL16, with 3600MHz not slower than CL18. Since the budget is rather limited, i don't think you can go for anything better than 3200MHz CL16. Maybe 3466, or even 3600 CL16 is in reach. Whenever you chose a Mainboard you should select the RAM accordingly to ensure compatibility. Mainboard manufacturers provide lists for each board, where they publish what RAM they have confirmed to work properly with that board. you can find those "qualified vendor lists" (QVL) on the manufacturers' websites. I did that already, and the combination MSI B450-A Pro Max +Kingston HyperX Fury RGB DIMM Kit 16GB, DDR4-3200, CL16-18-18 is supposed to work. But in case you can't get one or both of those, or manage to find better RAM that fits in the budget, you should check any new combination again.
