Getting a new PC, will it run Arma 3?

This is what I'm looking at:

Processor: Intel Core i5 3450, quad-core, 3.1 GHz, 6MB Cache
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760, 980 MHz, 2048 MB, GDDR5
Primary hard drive (boot): 120 GB, SSD Samsungs 840
Secondary hard drive (storage): 2 TB, 7200rpm, 32MB Cache, SATA 6,0 Gbit/s
RAM: 8 GB, 2x4096MB, DDR3 1600Mhz, Corsair VENGEANCE LP
Motherboard: MSI Z77IA-S01, ITX

So, will it run Arma 3 and if so how well?


I'm curse myself for not being very tech savvy...

There is no hope.

That should handle it pretty nicely, yes. I'm playing it on a mid-range gaming laptop that's a bit weaker than that and average aroun 30-40 fps on standard settings. If you have room to install it on the SSD, that will also help performance a bit, at least that was the case with Arma 2.

This game actually runs great. There isn't much FPS in it from running on low and ultra for me which is strange.

On lower settings, your CPU is doing more of the rendering, and on higher, your GPU. So higher settings can actually give better performance than lower settings sometimes.

That's true, it was the same in ArmA 2 as well. I know one of the settings that gets better performance on high than low are shadows.
