    ARMA2 performance on 146 cpu!

    I had no idea, but I'll remember to disable it when I'm playing ArmA2. Thank you.
  2. Yes, the i7 980 fits on the P6T7 WS Supercomputer motherboard. Have a look at the specifications here: http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=9ca8hJfGz483noLk
  3. Never had any issues with WD Black HDDs in the past, as far as I can remember they are fast and reliable, as Mr BangTail said.

    It seems rather strange that the gulftown doesn't perform that much better. Nothing like other charts, anyway.

    Very helpful chart. How come HT was disabled for the i7 processors?

    FRAPS now has cached recording

    Sounds lovely, but is the performance hit the same as if you were recording (and writing)?
  7. Marvellous, thank you for your swift response. I was under the impression ArmA2 was more CPU reliant.
  8. What's the major reason for that increase? Is it because the graphics card is (much) more powerful?
  9. Good morning gentlemen, I stand before you with a question. Within a few weeks I am completely upgrading my computer, and I was asking myself if any of you could give me an idea of what sort of performance increase I would be able to see in ArmA2. Current setup Motherboard: ASUS P5Q-E Processor: Intel C2Q Q9550 2.83 Ghz (OCed to run at 3.83 Ghz) Graphics card: Evga GeForce 260 GTX RAM: 2x2 GB DDR2 Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar 250 GB 7.200 RPM New setup Motherboard: ASUS P6T Processor: Intel i7 930 (with after market cooler to overclock) Graphics card: Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD5870 RAM: OCZ Gold 3x2 GB DDR3 1600 triple kit Hard Drive: 2x 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3 in Raid0 setup The upgrade is mainly to play ArmA2 even better and to be able to use Fraps without suffering too much of an FPS hit. The resolution I run is 1920x1080. Thank you and best regards, Quincey.
