ARMA 2 is a military simulation game for the PC developed by Bohemia Interactive Studio. ARMA 2 features five different armed factions, all with their own vehicles and weapons. ARMA 2 has got good feedback in terms of its realism, graphics, and the sheer scale of the game. On the other hand, as with the original Armed Assault game, ARMA 2 has been criticized for the unfinished and buggy state of release and the poor quality of the AI.

ARMA 2 Minimum System Requirements

  • Processor: Dual Core CPU for Intel or AMD

ARMA 2 Recommended System Requirements

  • Processor: Fast Dual Core CPU or Quad Core

    • S3RiOUS says:

      Yeah..I’ve got exactly the same spec like yours Geforce GT8500 1gb ddr2 and 3gb ram ddr2 except i’ve got dual core 1.6 ghz cpu but still i should have all the things that is needed to run this game smoothly in lower settings..but instead its lagg even after i overclocked a bit my Graphic card,some tweaking and lower the graphic setting..

  10. dan says:

    why does everyone brag about there hardware

    • Jack says:

      Buddy if you got 8500 or 8600 doesnt matter.
      what you need is high end prosecor and atleast 4gm ram.
      try to use windows xp for more effect.

  11. rasto says:

    nice, a have a laptop and i can only read stuff about arma 2 or take a peak on youtube abt it ;D

  12. alex says:

    hey guys, im gonna buy a gaming laptop with either this cpu: Intel Core i7 720QM 1.6GHz
    or this cpu: Intel Core i7 820QM 1.73GHz.

    the laptop has a 280 gtxm gpu/graphics card,
    so my question is:

    Will the i7 820qm cpu be a significant improvement over i7 720 qm cpu considering games such as arma 2, im asking cuz i have heard that arma 2 utilizes the cpu more than most games do.

    btw the 820 qm cpu costs 200$ more than the 720 qm cpu.

  13. fan of dan says:

    im with dan, why does every1 have to breg about their computers…

  14. subhasish says:

    our cofig–dual core 2.5 ghz, ddr2 2gb ram,nvidia gforce-9500, is this config match with the game arma-2 ?????

  19. rono says:

    core 7i .

    8 gb ram

    Sapphire HD5770

    acha game hai , khelne ke lie …

  20. Danny says:

    I have following configuration but its not working (deadly slow)!!

    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8600 @ 2.40GHz

    Memory (RAM) 4.00GB

    Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 9400M-G

    Gaming graphics 1024 MB Total available

    Hard disk 320GB

    Any advice??

    • Geraint says:

      This is because, the game is badly optimised, and had major issuses with hardware. Your processor is just good enough on the boarder line. However 9400 is not powerful enough by an stretch. 9500GT again is too slow due to the shader clock being on the slow side. For this game to run around 30fps on mid/high graphics you need a 9600GT or up at least.

  21. twinklestar says:

    I have following configuration
    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4600 @ 2.40GHz

  24. Eric Wallace says:

    GFX don’t matter to me, it’s still a wonderful MilSim even if the textures are virtually non-existant and the explosions are little more than puffs :D

  25. Andrew says:

    or ati 5770
    and 4 GB ram
    40 GB hard
    it will work on best resolution
    iv’e tried it on my friend pc
    good luck

    • m4st3r¬iNf3rNuS says:

      get 8800 or 9800, stick to nvidia, it’s better, here’s a advice, people think that having a 8400 is enough cause it is apparently better than a 7800, don’t let numbers fool you, cause what does the job is the chip in the VGA, and the 7800, 8800, 9800, have same chip, that’s why some times having a 9400 won’t run games that “strangely” an 8800 does. good luck

    core 2 quad q9300 OC 3.2 un liquid cooling (thermaltake bigwater 735(real liquid cooling unlike those new all-in-one craps))
    8gb ddr3 gskill
    1.5 tb HDD raid 0+1, 256gb ssd
    thermaltake tr2 rx 750w PSU
    MSi gtx460 hawk OC( ohh btw this card is fully custom, custom pcb, custom cooler, custom deisgn, unlike crapy reference cards, this one has 7+1 phase power delivery which means more OC capability).

    ArmA 2 is the best, along with CoD, crysis, battlefield, i mean real games!!!
