Hi, when playing Battlefield 3 I can get near 40 FPS when facing away from the map e.g. Looking at the ocean or away from buildings and players, but when I look towards any densely populated area of buildings my FPS drop to 20 (Noshahr canals 25+). Do you think this is down to the CPU, GPU or maybe both? The problem is my CPU is bottlenecking my GPU, so a GPU upgrade may not benefit me.
