  1. I have just build my first pc with Arma 3 in mind. The components I used are shown below. I built it myself and haven't worked out if a prebuilt one would have been cheaper, but I tried to stick with quality components all the way. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Intel-Generation-i5-3570K-3-40GHz-Technology/dp/B007RUZKK6/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1368214187&sr=1-1&keywords=i5+3570 CPU http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B009LI7CKI/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 SSD (paid £279.14 for SSD + CPU) http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0085IZRSO/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 RAM (paid £37.99 x 2no) 16gb installed dual channel http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007JRGW1I/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 MB (paid 125.06) http://www.ebuyer.com/227503-corsair-850w-ax850-modular-psu-cmpsu-850axuk Power (paid £127.59) http://www.ebuyer.com/product/240814 CASE (paid £109.99) http://www.scan.co.uk/products/2gb-msi-gtx-660-twin-frozr-iii-oc-28nm-pcie-30-(x16)-6008mhz-gddr5-gpu-1033mhz-boost-1098mhz-cores-9 2no GPU in SLI http://www.scan.co.uk/products/nzxt-phantom-side-panel-black-with-window CASE side window (paid £356.44 for 2no GPU + side window, including delivery all from scan) http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/cooling/watercooling/cw-9060009-ww.html CPU cooling (paid £91.99) in push pull in roof of case - not my pc but show cooling setup http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251261 140 front fan + blue LED (paid about £17) 200mm additional roof fan with blue LED (paid about £18) Tray for SSD to fit in drive tray about £5 Total £1,206.19 CPU overclocked easily to 4.4 Ghz...still to get it higher...not a priority just now Its my first pc build and I have nicknamed in The Beast. Having moved over from the 360 and Ghost Recon, I can whole heartedly say that the Arma alpha has already convinced me I have made a wise choice to move from console to pc.
  2. Hi All, I am building a new rig with this game primarily in mind. So far I have got the following and would appreciate recommendations on which processor to get 3570K or 3770K? MSI Z77A GD55 2no MSI GTX 660 OC Twin Frozrs to go in SLI 16GB Corsair Vengence 1600mhz Corsair AX850 power supply also still to get...Sandisk 840 pro either 128GB or 256GB Case NZXT Phantom full Does this game justify a 3770K and how should my system perform with Arma? I am jumping ship from Ghost Recon on the 360 and your advice would be welcomed.....
