You should get Combined Operations. Operation Arrowhead is just an expansion. You could get the free version of Arma2 and then buy Operation Arrowhead, but then you will be missing out on some textures. I'd go with the full versions of both games, it's only $10 more.

I just noticed that ArmA 2 is only using about 60-70% of my GPU, even when I am getting poor frame rates and my CPU isn't bottlenecking either. Anyone know what this is or how to fix it?

On low settings the game offloads GPU processing onto the CPU, so try turning settings both up and down to find where your computer performs best.

Alright I'm hoping someone who plays this game through Steam can help me out.

I've tried manually installing, and using the the Six Shooter updater way to play and it simply won't work for me. One thing that is confusing is the latest patch 1.7.2 says it requires the beta but the six shooter updater as well as the forums I read says you cannot use the beta patch with Steam.

Is anyone willing to walk me through an installation method using Steam that will let me play?

For the record I just completely uninstalled both Arma II games as well as all dl mod files. So I'm going to be starting from step A.

Are you getting an error or something when trying to install the beta? Reinstall both games, open Arma II then open the expansion. Then dl the beta and install, should work. That is what I did and it is working fine for me.

Installing tonight. I am very excited, seems to be another video game that is a challenge and builds on the ideas of a "mmo".

Wow, I can only get 99% utilization when I use 200% 3D resolution, and then I am getting 20 fps. Even stranger, I get 99% utilization when I zoom in. This game hates me ಠ_ಠ

what does that mean?

are you playing in 3d? if so that would explain the 20fps, every frame needs to be rendered twice*
