Not really, the 8800 GT is not much more powerful than a 8800 GTS(G92)
ArmA 2 tend to run bad on G80 and early G92 cards.



I also stutter in large cities before 9.7 drivers, seems it's just too much to load



Thank you once more, will add a W7 section soon.

Also, updated OP.

Cheers.
Just an update Sanders...I Installed Vista 64 SP2 and no more stutter.

I can run everything on high

I found some strange things when i tested old sahrani maps from arma on arma 2.

They look now absolutely stunning, thanks to the new engine and damn they are running smooth.
I get from low settings and about 20 FPS to high settings and about 30 FPS on my sig rig.

So the game is not badly optimized, it's the maps that are unoptimized.

Well the cat 9.8s are out, anyone want to test them to see if arma runs any better?

I'll try 9.8 tonight.... still waiting on the additional 4 GB's of RAM after I posted in the ARMA2 Club thread that I CTD'd to desktop saying my 4 GB's wasn't enough.......

only happened once....but I did the command prompt version of Defrag last night (defrag c: -w)....let it run overnight, ran it again this morning (still saying 11% fragmented)...but since there isn't any indicator anymore in Vista... wasn't sure if it completed or if I stopped it in the middle...

Hopefully it will be done when I'm home from work... I'll install 9.8 and give it a go. RAM should be here tomorrow - toss 4 more gigs in (an OCZ motley crew of 2 DIMMS of Fatality 1066 and 2 DIMMS of Blade 800) - will set them in the middle of the 2 timing wise at 800 speed.... voltage right where it wants (2.1 if you can believe that)

wish me luck!
