upgrade your CPU to an i7 and i5 is a bit old now, still works fine as i have i5 6600 and i can run arma fine. However if i had a choice i would upgrade to i7 7700k or 8700k as they are way better. Also get an SSD and run arma off that.

Like right now i usually run Arma 3 with 45-60 FPS outside major cities....but when im in Kavala im down to 30-45....i know 30 should be ok but sometimes its a bit laggy...im just wondering if i get a better cpu will it fix it or just arma is rly that badly optimized.

Just google it. And find processors for chipset 1151 and then you will get a list there and alot variety.

One more thing i suggest you to only change your processor because arma is a cpu stress game

Old thread but wait for the Ryzen 3rd gen CPUs, get one of them and a compatible motherboard.

Yeah thats good. Ryzen generation 3 is way good man is really good. 

 

And also cheap from intel processor 

 

Intel had alot of brand value added in their products. They sell that very expensive  and i hope in future as ryzen (AMD)is going very fast.it is already in competition with intel and good in quality and good in price
