  1. An ssd will only help with loading maps, it will be faster. A cpu could possibly help your fps, it really depends on the rest of your rig. If you're bottle-necking or not.
  2. upgrade to a 8320 or 6300... then do a little overclocking.

    Multiplayer is hard on the cpu, so the better the cpu and clock speeds the better your multiplayer performance will be.

    Well I have a GTX 760 so how much will a better CPU affect FPS?

    well it depends on what you have. If you have an FX-4100 right now and upgrade to an 8350 it could be a 20+ FPS difference
  5. A CPU upgrade will make a huge difference if you're talking BF3 multiplayer. I upgraded from an FX-6300 (overclocked) to an i7 4770k and went from 45-70fps to 65-120fps with an AMD 7870 LE. I hit the minimum fps a lot less as well. With the FX I would mostly hang around 55-60, but would dip into the lower 50's quite often on certain maps. With the 4770k, I very rarely hit my lows, and usually hang around 80-90 fps on most maps. If you can, you should grab an FX-8320 or 8350. Large multiplayer games are extremely CPU dependent.

    40-50 FPS mate :) Get a hyper 212 EVO and overclock and you will get even better
