Answer is not that simple.

You need you whole system to be capable of coping.

The next card I'm going to get is this.

http://www.umart.com.au/newindex2.phtml?bid=2

It will smash any current game to bits pluss run Eyefinity.

What is you PCs current specs.

Didnt link a card scorp.

Panda depends on your price range.

I just bought a 7750 for 89 from Umart and it runs PS2 and Arma 2 on high with 65 FPS.

But yeah all depends on your set up for it to work effectively.

Toms Hardware and I both concur with Scorpie:

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-6.html

The model Scorpie suggests is about $150 over the lowest you can possibly find a 7970, BUT it is a very open design and should run very cool. I have ASUS cards myself and have never had problems with them, nor do I think I will.

If Nvidia is your thing a GTX 680 is in the same calibre range.

However the last word of it is, Panda, we dont know what the ARMA3 performance is going to be like so, buy now at own risk.

I would imagine it would be CPU dependant tho (like most ambitious games), so without a decent CPU on a modern chipset platform a lot of this graphics card will be wasted on a game like ARMA 3

Reason I won't go NVIDIA is simply Eyefinity.

There is a slightly cheaper version of that card available which the only difference is a slower clock speed but apparently you can just over clock it anyway.

Yeah I always thought it was possible on Nvidia, if not strictly proprietary.
