You may not have enough memory allocated to the video card. Or your video card memory may be bad. Or you system memory may be bad. Or your driver may be corrupt.

You are wasting 4.5GB of RAM running 32bit Windows 7 as it can't address more the 3.5GB. I recommend you reinstall Windows 7 64bit. Or if you are stuck with an OEM license look into buying Windows 10 x64.

Sounds like you're running out of VRAM. You probably need to lower the graphics settings on your game.

Also, system RAM can sometimes cause this error too.. 32-bit versions of Windows only allow up to 4GB. Check to make sure Pagefile is set to "System Managed".

It says total paging file size for all drivers 7070 mb. Should I put a check mark in for automatically managing paging file size for all drivers?

The thing is I can play arma 2 ultra 70 fps war thunder 300 fps. And arma 3 on ultra 60 I just don't get why arma 3 is the only one that crashes. I don't think it's my gpu...

One game crashing is a little different but it could still be the things I listed first. New games coming out are starting to be 64 bit only, this is why you need to move to 64 bit OS. DirectX 12 will change a lot for existing DX11 games and new DX12 games coming out, this is why you need to upgrade to Windows 10. You may be able to upgrade to Windows 10

I've seemed to fix the problem... My motherboard wasn't up to date, and after I did that it finally let me update my windows. Then I joined an Arma 3 server and it worked flawlessly. Thank you guys for helping me the whole way. Means a lot to me
