    Default Anyone played Arma 2/dayZ with an i5 2310?

    Lag? Cpu or Gpu? Basically if it'll work or if a better cpu is needed? Oh and will this cpu bottleneck a gtx 670?

    That would mainly be up to your network and the server you're playing on.

    It'll work plenty fine, 4 sandy bridge cores pumping away is alot of power and there's not much that will hold it back.

    Nope, but you may want to wait, the GTX 660 Ti (basically a GTX 670 with a 192 bit bus) is being released very soon (said to be on the 16th) and will give GTX 660 Ti performance for 100 bucks less.

    So what does this mean? Other than saving $100? Is there any noticeable difference?
