BF3; runs great on High, not so good on Ultra...help!!!

Hello,
As my message title says, BF3 runs great on high settings, but I want it to run on Ultra. What do I need to upgrade to make this happen? Where would I get the most bang for my buck as far as upgrading? Is it worth trying to overclock my current CPU? I'd like to use newegg.com when making any upgrades/purchases. Here are my specs…

-Windows 7 64bit Home Premium Edition
-ASUS p7p55d-e pro motherboard
-Intel i5-760 2.8Ghz CPU
-Cooler Master Hyper 212+ heatsink
-OCZ Modstream Pro 700W PSU
-XFX HD-Radeon 5850 1GB GPU
-4GB Mushkin DDR3 1333mz RAM (8-8-8-24)
-1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm HDD
-28” Hanns G monitor at 1920x1080 rez


Thank you!

More about runs great high good ultra help
  1. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graphics-performance,3063-12.html

    check out that, Atleast a 5870 or 6950/6970,
    But I'm pretty sure they were using a 2600K aswell.

    Why not try running the game on ultra and lower Shadows To High, probably not to much of a diffirence in quality but a big jump in FPS.
