wow! That's a lot. I love the video card! You upgrading? And also, do you really need Windows 7 Ultimate - it won't be faster or anything. Just has tools for big business and crap. Then again, with what you do, maybe it has a feature you'd use. I dunno.

Nice system!

Good suggestion, Ingo. Arma has over 8gb transfer going on while you play the game!!! That's a lot of load on the hard drive. I'm thinkin maybe 2 RAID Arrays - one Mirror for the OS (2disk) and a RAID 0 Striped (2disk SSD) and maybe Arma would run super smooth.

And Window Ultimate does nothing for a PC gamer!!! Don't waste your money on overpriced Alienware crap unless you absolutely need a gaming-capable laptop for travel. That's the ONLY thing that company does well.

Windows "Ultimate" is just a buzz word, the OS is for businesses, tech support, shit like that. They throw buzz words onto things so you buy it, or include it "for free" so you feel special, or so that $3000 price tag is easier to swallow.

I love the technical support offer on that system, BLuD! You need that as the leader - 24-hour geek hotline!

SSD's in raid 0 dont get much performance increase since they have a really high read and write speed. im running my windows and some of my games on my SSD and the first thing you notice is your startup time and arma runs so damn smooth.
