ARMA Free and Bought ARMA

I know ARMA 2 has lesser quality visuals on the free version.
Online I do between 18-25 FPS.

Knowing the graphics are different, I have to ask...
Does ARMA 2 run better when bought?

What I'm asking is, does the free version have worse performance than if bought? (Not visual detail, but frame rate, does the Free version have less performance as in stability and fps?)

Similar, not very different. (For performance make sure you turned off everything in graphics options)

Obviously the higher quality textures are going to put a bigger strain on your hardware. But if the free version is an older build, it may not have the benefit of all the patches that optimized and stabilized the full game.
