Alright guys so I am running bf3 on my new system at 45 - 60 frames per second. There are sometimes large spikes which annoy the heck out of me, and i heard that some solutions are to either 1. download an fps limiter and limit the fps to 30 or 60, but i cant find one that supports dx11 only one that supports 8 or 9 and bf3 doesnt support 9. 2. limit the monitor refresh rate to 59hz, and i cant find a program that would let me do that. Could anyone make suggestions on what i should do? thanks.
Make sure you turn off Anti Aliasing Deffered OFF. That is a real killer. You can also try setting the graphics to Auto, I've had really good luck with that and seems to work well for quite a few people. The game has points where it really churns your graphics card and turning back the settings so you have some "reserve power" is always a good idea. People are trying to top out their settings and when the action gets rough it starts bogging down.

8gb corsair vengeance
and a 60 hz monitor...
should i be getting higher than 45 - 60 fps? it seems to mostly be 45 - 50 in open areas but i feel li9ke my system could do better than that..
