Hey,
I have been having BF3 lag issues for a while now in certain parts of maps in BF3. Norshair Canals, Operation firestorm, Caspian border are the maps that I get FPS issues on. I have seen people on YouTube with very similar set-ups to me and there FPS never tends to drop below 60.

specs:

GPU: Asus GTX 680 DirectCU II Top
CPU: Intel-core i5-3470 3.2Ghz/Boost 4.0GHz OC
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-M
PSU: FSP AURUM GOLD 700W
RAM: Kingston 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz (May be the issue since RAM is old)

here's some notes that will be useful to stop people from asking silly questions:

- My CPU and GPU in game barely even break a sweat when my fps drops to 40-50 constantly in these areas. I use the in game perfoverlay to view the usage of my GPU and CPU and the max value of my GPU and CPU is 31 and around 27 average.

- My CPU temp does not exceed 45 celcius

- My GPU temp does not exceed 55 celcius

- My CPU is overclocked from 3.6Ghz boost clock to 4.0Ghz boost clock. Please not the issues occurred before overclocking

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I really have a feeling that my shitty RAM is causing the bottleneck.

I don't think it's your ram, and as long as your cpu isn't maxing out (this means a single core too) then it's not a cpu bottleneck.
I have a gtx 770 and i get dips to 40-50 when it's really intense. Like tanks blowing up and people dying everywhere.

this is even with 16 player servers. I forgot to mention my RAM is force overclocked by my motherboard, because my RAM is not compatible with the motherboard. I was looking to get new RAM to go with the blue and black theme of my PC anyways so I go down and buy some and see if anything changes.

If not I guess it is just BF3 and not my PC

EDIT: Seems that I have fixed the problem by using Driver Sweeper to sweep all Nvidia related drivers and such. I never uninstalled anything from my previous GTX 550 TI and that may have been the cause of the problems. I am getting an 75fps minimum in resource demanding Crysis 2 maps and 85fps minimum in other maps. I used to drop to 35fps in crysis 2 on nearly all maps, but it seems that all is fixed.

I can't test it on BF3, because I tried to move the folder to my SSD and most files went missing weirdly
