This is your problem, a 3ghz processor and an 8800gt has no hope at playing arma 2 at the higher settings, even mine suffers under its demanding engine (not even the highest settings). To put it simply, just drop the settings and that lag should disappear.

do you have AA on in the game or under the nvidia control panel (or whatever its called)? That would cause crazily low FPS in most games.

I got even less with my old setup, which is similar to your current one. ARMA II is the GTA:IV of shooters when it comes to optimisation.

Good call it was on but it didn't fix it.

All low with all extras off. average fps 20 with dips of 6 fps
post #9 of 15
My 4GHz E8500 and crossfired 4850's couldn't get above 30fps average in the demo for this game. I had all settings on "Normal" which was the lowest available. That was a 1920x1080 resolution with 2x AA...I will never go any lower than 2x AA. I'll drop the resolution and detail levels before giving up my AA. If I can't get playable framrates I just don't play the game.

So I don't now if a 8800 series card can handle this game. Which sucks because I don't think the visuals were that great for ARMA2. I wouldn't put them much higher than BF2142.
