So I am upgrading my monitor to a ASUS 24" 1080p monitor for christmas. My current monitor is an HDTV that runs in 720p and on High Settings I run anywhere from 40 - 100+ FPS depending on what map. So will my future 1080p monitor drop my FPS? If so by how much?

You will probably be running a combination of medium and high settings. BF3 is very easy on the CPU, so that is not your weak spot. It will take your GPU and whip it like a mule, as it does with ALL video cards. Best advice I can give is to set the video to auto and enjoy. Once you feel comfortable with the settings it chose, you can try and creep some settings up. turn on VSync though. the game looks amazing at even medium. I would take high details and medium everything else if it was possible, which it probably will be for your card.
