Sorry, I don't think it's possible on that setup, mine lags pretty frequently due to the optimization on the lowest settings. The worst part is Bohemia have cancelled ArmA II: Free so you can't test it (unless there's a demo on Steam I'm unaware of). Otherwise, it wouldn't be too enjoyable. :/

This is a free version of the game. No microctransactions, no time limit, it just limits that graphics settings, no mods, less multiplayer servers. But you're better off buying the game. Get Operation Arrowhead as well when you can, incredible fun. :)

Go for it, if you play more multiplayer then domination is the way to go, just use the filter for the domination servers. Most people play it serious enough but not over the top serious so it's a great balance between fun and some RP.
As for ArmA III, it feels a lot more simplified for me, stuff like the crosshair and controls etc… Flying feels too easy and floaty. I still take previous ArmA's over ArmA III any day, but you have the rig for it as far as I can tell so there's not much point in avoiding it. Optimization is a bit strange so I'm not entirely sure you can run it, but since I haven't fully experienced the power of a gaming rig I won't give my estimation. :)

You're welcome, enjoy. :D If you ever do get ArmA 3, let me know how your settings and FPS are at an offline scenario or edited mission with a big enough amount of firepower on each side (tanks, jets, etc…). Anyway, enjoy the gazillion mods available for both ArmA games and if you want I can recommend you some to make the games even better. :)
