I'm not really too sure what to get.

I need to upgrade my computer because it's really not that great. My FPS on Arma has never really been good, and I'm not really too sure how to improve it, or for that matter even find out what my current shit is, (my brother done it all).

So if someone could please tell me how to find out my current shit and how to improve it that would great.

Not sure on the how to find current specs, but if you need any assistance in upgrading and choosing parts, feel free to PM me, I will always be happy to help.

Download software like Speccy and that will tell you almost everything about your current specs.

Oh, and also make sure you upgrade to a CPU which is good with Single-Thread games like ArmA, AMD CPU's are not good with Single-Threading.

You can just hit the Windows Button and R, and then type 'dxdiag' this tells you your specs. Hope I helped :)

You just have to switch between the tabs, and it tells you graphics and things, you can also send them as files to people (I sent mine to Bohemia a few months ago). :)

This is how you find out your current specs:

- GO to start

- Computer

- At the TOP there should be a tab called SYSTEM PROPERTIES

- From here you can see your CPU and various bit of information information

However if you want to go into more depth:

- In the menu you are already in on the left there should be a DEVICE MANAGER option

- From here you can look at all your specs. For example go to DISPLAY ADAPTERS and click the drop down and it should show your video card.

Upgrade really, I don't know what the budget will be, maybe around 100 or something

Do you know what type of RAM you have such as DDR3.

From what I can see I wouldn't upgrade your video card because its in that £100 budget range but I will try and find some good RAM or perhaps a SSD. I cant see it being worth upgrading anything else.

Solid state drive, basically its a ridiculously fast hard drive. You would run your games and operating system on this and everything would load faster. The thing is you would have to reinstall pretty much everything and then use your current hard drive for mainly storage. Lets say if you want to record you can run your OS and games on your SSD and record to the second one. If you do this you shouldn't lose any frames when writing the footage to the second drive also your performance should be better.
